“Down by the River” was written by Neil Young supposedly when he was laid up with a 103 degree fever. It first appeared on the Neil Young with Crazy Horse LP Everyone Knows this is Nowhere which was released in 1969.
It takes serious guts for an indie band to cover an absolute classic Neil Young tune and attempt to make it their own. And then to lead off their new album with said tune puts that band into a whole new category of guts. But Johnny Jewel and company pull it off beautifully.
