Sam Cook-Parrott & Allison Crutchfield – “Something About What Happens” (Lucinda Williams Cover)

It’s by no means a surprise to hear that Swearin’s Allison Crutchfield has been collaborating with Sam Cook-Parrott, the songwriter behind Radiator Hospital’s understated but equally excellent full-length Torch Song. Crutchfield is featured on Torch Song’s final track, “Midnight Nothing,” which is perhaps the most unusual song on the record and demonstrates the duo’s compatible cadences. Cook-Parrott also co-wrote Crutchfield’s EP Lean In to It, which was released in August of last year. It’s enviable to hear two people work so easily alongside one another, a kind of seamless pairing. Cook-Parrott and Crutchfield recorded a cover of Lucinda Williams’ “Something About What Happens” for the independent, bi-weekly webpaper The Media. The song was initially released on Williams’ 1992 full-length, Sweet Old World, and although the cover doesn’t mark any sort of major departure from the original, it’s a welcome revival.
