Ezra Furman and the Harpoons

When Ezra Furman and the Harpoons stopped by SPIN's backstage tent at Lollapalooza in August, the folk-rock foursome gave us a keyboard-heavy, pop-rock rendition of Daniel Johnston's "Walking the Cow," a 1983 lo-fi ode to uncertainty. Watch the video below.

With their rendition, singer/guitarist Ezra Furman and keyboardist Job Mukkada trade vocals on the choruses, while lead guitarist Andrew Langer and drummer Adam Abrutyn keep the pulse of the original song going.

Ezra Furman and the Harpoons' vid is the latest in SPIN's series of Lollapalooza covers. Check out Carney cover Queen, Amazing Baby covering the dBs, thenewno2 covering Thom Yorke, and Kevin Devine covering the Smiths.
