This month, Quick Before It Melts celebrates 10 years of music blogging and writing by honouring 10 Canadian artists who’ve had the greatest impact and influence on Quick Before It Melts over the last 10 years, and each in their own way have left their mark on our website and our soul. We’re calling this special series of posts 10/10.
I don’t claim any proprietary rights to the idea of putting together compilations of cover songs, but the notion of Canadians covering Canadians that became DOMINIONATED came from a couple of key cover songs, one of which was The Acorn covering Gowan’s “Strange Animal” for a special release from Paper Bag Records. Though Rolf Klausener hasn’t contributed to a DOMINIONATED compilation (yet! I’m gonna keep asking!), his penchant for finding peculiar and surprising interpretations of existing songs was a direct influence on our yearly collection of covers.
So while there’s any number of possible playlist possibilities for my favourite songs by The Acorn, I decided to stay with the DOMINIONATED spirit and put together a special 10/10 Acorn Playlist of cover songs, remixes, and original work that Klausener has released via his Soundcloud account that are all available as free downloads.
