Bywater folkies Hurray for the Riff Raff have been making headway in England, having a compilation of songs from their first two independent albums released by Loose Music in the U.K. earlier this year.
This month, the British Mojo Magazine picked Hurray for the Riff to cover “My Sweet Lord” for their monthly CD that accompanies the magazine. This month’s theme was George Harrison covers. Now Hurray for the Riff Raff is offering the song as a free download—you can get the track in return for an email address in the box above. It’s not Riff Raff’s first foray in classic Americana covers—they also posted covers of Hank Williams and Bob Dylan last fall to YouTube and Soundcloud.
Hurray for the Riff Raff play the Voodoo Experience this Saturday, October 29 at 12:45 on the Bingo! Parlor Stage.
