Life In Vain (Daniel Johnston Cover)

by Al Mirabella



This is one of my favorite songs in the world. John Darnielle said when you cover a song, don't cover a song you have any great reverence for, because you will never be satisfied with the result. I think that's probably true, but I don't think I will ever be satisfied with a late night computer cover so I'll just let it be.

I, Al Mirabella, made all of the mouth sounds and guitar sounds on this song, and I took the photo on the front. It isn't of me though, it's my good friend Matthew Hanimov who is a good drummer and an even gooder fellow.
