#songoftheday = SARAH JAFFE: “THE NEW KID” (OLD 97’S COVER)

As you can hear above, Sarah Jaffe has done an exceptional cover of the Old 97’s “The New Kid.”  The track, which sports some great upright bass, is from the benefit album Desperate Times.  The project consists of artists such as Ben Kweller, Polyphonic Spree, Hayes Carll, The O’s and others covering Old 97’s tracks for the sake of donating proceeds to Charity: Water, a non-profit organization that’s working hard to bring safe and clean drinking water to people in developing countries.  If Jaffe’s contribution is any indication, it’s going to be one hell of a tribute album.
