A few people have posted about Dawn Landes covering Peter Bjorn & John's "Young Folks". The You Tube video has already been viewed over 18,000 times. I first heard the song without seeing the video and so I kept wondering why she added the annoying backing vocalists. Now I realize they are "Old Folks"... Cute. The first time I heard Dawn's music was during the movie Winter Passing. Her cover of "Young Folks" is a nice novelty track and will hopefully introduce more people to her music. She is originally from Louisville, KY but currently resides in NYC where she is a recording engineer for artists like Hem, Joseph Arthur and Ryan Adams. She is a multi-instrumentalist; she's got skills playing the accordion, glockenspiel, optigan & more. These are the two songs that were featured on the Winter Passing soundtrack.
