Gillian Welch covering "Black Star" by Radiohead.



Don't have much time to write today, but this song is delivered in typical Gillian Welch style: she sings directly to the listener in her melodic, ageless voice. . .she holds down the rhythm guitar while Dave Rawlings explores the universe with his always brilliant lead. Acoustics all around, but the sound is somehow big. Listen below!
