Hear Ryley Walker Cover Grouper, Cass McCombs, & More In Lagniappe Session

Ryley Walker participated in Aquarium Drunkard’s first Lagniappe Session of the year, a series that encourages artists to cover pretty much anyone they desire. It’s led to some interesting combinations over the years, like when Ought covered Cyndi Lauper or Mikal Cronin did Neutral Milk Hotel. Walker, who released his sophomore album Primrose Green last year, is known for having a pretty eclectic taste in music, and his selections for the session show it: He takes on Grouper’s “Heavy Water/I’d Rather Be Sleeping,” Cass McCombs’ “Robin Egg Blue,” Amen Dunes’ “Everybody Is Crazy,” and Isotope 217’s “Real MC’s,” the jazzy Chicago group featuring members of Tortoise.
