New Video + Tour Dates : Richard Buckner : Still Looking for You (Townes Van Zandt cover)

I’ve been a die-hard fan of Richard Buckner from right about the time the Earth cooled, but it’s taken me a couple spins to warm to his latest, Our Blood. However, I’m happy to report that my perseverance has paid off, and I’m now feeling it’s without a doubt one of the top 20 records of the year.

To support the record, Buckner is doing the co-headlining thing with David Kilgour, and since snippets of Our Blood have been circulating for a couple months, we figured it was best to toss you a knuckler in the form of this cover of Townes Van Zandt’s Still Looking for You, recorded in July 2009 as part of XX Merge 20th Anniversary Festival.
