Song of the Day posts one cool cover every morning. Catch up on past installments here.

Earlier this month we pointed you to covers of every song off Wilco’s Summerteeth. There, Wisconsin’s The Celebrated Workingman gave a reverb-drenched performance of “I’m Always in Love.” Today we bring you a second new cover of the song, this one a lot more basic.

Owen is Mike Kinsella. You might know him from Chicago bands like Cap‘n Jazz or Joan of Arc, but since 2001 he’s been recording solo discs as “Owen.” “Abandoned Bridges,” his most recent 7” single, contains this Wilco cover on the back. It’s just him and an acoustic guitar, but him and an acoustic guitar goes a lot farther than some. (via TwentyFourBit)
