Lovin's for fools :: Bon Iver covers Sarah Siskind, gives me shivers
Bon Iver has said that Sarah Siskind's 2006 album Studio.Living Room changed his life, and he's been closing his sets all summer with a haunting cover of her song "Lovin's For Fools." Sarah finally joined him onstage at Nashville's Exit/In on August 11th to sing it with him.
If this isn't enough to make you want to never give your heart again, then I don't know what would be:

Lovin's For Fools - Sarah Siskind (from this EP)
Sarah's voice has a chill-inducing Appalachian edge to it that conjures the unflinching starkness of Gillian Welch, and this song sounds like sleepwalking and bad dreams. There's also another fantastic rendition of this cover with Bon Iver and The Bowerbirds at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on July 29.
