Watch Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace Cover ‘Dilaudid’ By The Mountain Goats

Footage has emerged of Laura Jane Grace & her band the Devouring Mothers covering the Mountain Goats song ‘Dilaudid’ (from their seminal 2005 album The Sunset Tree) during a show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

With her cover, Grace and band turn a tense, orchestral song by the Goats into a blistering and electrified punk rock banger.

As Pitchfork points out, it’s not the first time the Against Me! frontwoman has demonstrated her love of the folk-rock outfit.

Back in 2017, Grace covered Mountain Goats favourite ‘The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton’ for the podcast (and subsequent compilation album) I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats: All Hail West Texas, which saw numerous artists cover tracks from the band’s 2002 album. You can listen to that here.
