C'Mon Kid EP

We’re close to the end of Dave Hause’s 7-inch series. The fourth in the series comes from Sabot Productions. Hause decided to tackle his friends in None More Black and a more predictable Lucero track. Let's see how it went.

First of the originals. “C’mon Kid” was turned into a piano ballad. It’s a beautiful one at that, but it’s probably my least favorite rendition of the song. Next up is “Prague.” This was the most interesting track on Resolutions. On this EP, it’s more of a folk song with downplayed vocals. The first cover is of Lucero’s “Joining the Army.” Hause keeps the country motif but uses an electric guitar and replaces the violin from the original with a peddle steel guitar. The best part is when Hause goes into a little bit of Lucero’s “Tonight Ain’t Gonna be Good” at the end. The other cover is of None More Black’s, “Oh, There’s Legwork.” It’s a simple acoustic cover that’s on par with the original and the highlight of the EP.

It’s probably my least favorite in the series, but it has the None More Black cover, so it’s still a solid release. Last up in the series will be from Side One Dummy. Stay tuned.
