Hear Cayetana’s Augusta Koch cover “Side by Side” by Three Man Cannon
Needing a break from working on new Cayetana material, singer-songwriter Augusta Koch recently recorded a quick cover of “Side by Side” by fellow Philadelphians Three Man Cannon, a track taken from the latter’s 2014 LP Pretty Many People.
She carried over the echo-y atmosphere of the original while letting the dreariness of last week’s weather seep into the stripped down recording, sticking to just a guitar and subtle synth for a more somber vibe. There’s a roominess that is both all-encompassing and desolate, like feeling alone in a crowded street.
Catch Cayetana at Union Transfer with PUP and Chastity on November 5th; tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here. Listen to Augusta’s cover of “Side by Side” below, followed by the original.
