Freeload "Beneath The Fold (Acoustic)" from Dogs of Winter

beneaththefold.jpgIt's no secret: I love playing cover songs.  I take great pleasure in arranging (and re-arranging) a composition to give it a Pretty-Woman/Eliza-Doolittle makeover to turn the whore into a saint, or vicea versa.  It's an extra treat when the song I'm "covering" is one of my own.

Today marks the release of "Beneath The Fold" from my stoner-metal band, Dogs of Winter.  We stripped down the psychedelic maelstrom (as it appears on From Soil To Shale) to a few acoustic guitars and a string section and I have to admit, I can't decide which version I like better.

You can download the MP3 in two high-quality bitrates at lapdanceacademy.com/fold - bundled with a PDF digibooklet featuring artwork from Boston-based illustrator, Joe Boyle (the design process for which, he blogs about here).

I also got to lose my mind for a few days, scouring the Prelinger collection of royalty-free movies at archive.org and cobbled together a companion video for the track.  Any filmmakers/video-artists out there really need to take advantage of this amazing collection.

Let us know what you think of the track and the video in the comments, would ya?

[UPDATE: my previous link to Joe's illustration process was based on the old cover, here's his process-piece on "Beneath The Fold" for all of you art-nerds]

Loved the track. Very atmospheric. The video was eerie verging on downright frightening. Loved it! There is some wonderful stuff on the archive.org for sure :)

I think it's beautiful and brilliant, which is why I pushed it up a today's top post.
