I have a long standing crush on Jennifer Herrema. So it makes me happy to see her all partnered up with lovely babe Kurt Vile for this “Before They Make Me Run” Stones’ cover. Give a listen on Pitchfork.
I haven’t given her new project, Black Bananas, much attention yet – but you should right here.
