Cuff the Duke reigns from Oshawa, Ontario and are Toronto-based, bringing alt-country to the masses via Paper Bag Records. The band is preparing for their fifth album release Morning Comes out February 28 (via Paper Bag Records), and has teamed up with us at FILTER to present a collection of covers found in their EP In Our Time. Each week we'll be premiering one track off the EP in anticipation for the forthcoming full length! First up from Cuff the Duke their Smog cover of the track "Cold Blooded Old Times." Read a few words from the band below.
"Our new record Morning Comes is a realization of the years that precede it. Its narrative is in the past tense dealing with loss and the passage of time. We wanted to pick songs to cover that influenced us over the years but would also tie into the theme of our record. Bill Callahan (Smog, in this case) is someone that every member of Cuff The Duke can agree on. His music is a staple in our van. "Cold Blooded Old Times" has always been one of our favourite songs." - Cuff the Duke
