Bonnie “Prince” Billy earned his stripes as a folkie, so him covering the Everly Brothers comes as no surprise. No surprise, that is, until you actually hear it. Paired with the Phantom Family Halo, he turns Don and Phil’s “I Wonder If I Should Care” into a roaring guitar freakout, the words only an excuse to get to more six-string theatrics. Decidedly not the indie-strummer approach you might expect.

“I Wonder If I Should Care” comes off a four-song vinyl EP The Mindeater released last month on Sophomore Lounge. A CD and digital version comes out later this summer on Partisan Records, the home of Phantom Family Halo. Listen below.
