Popdar! - 28/10/11

"Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys"
Karen O

Apparently this is a cover of a Willie Nelson song from the 70s (ta NME), and this video was made, and subsequently this track to soundtrack it, for an American farming support organization. But take away all that context, and you've got a haunting, ethereal, piano 'n' pad led track with a beautifully simple vocal from Karen O, in a rare calm and collected performance, where her voice doesn't crack with emotion, and as a result, exuding even more.
