You may know Mikal Cronin best as one of the players in Ty Segall’s live band. He also has a solo music career, and is releasing his new album MCII today via Merge. To celebrate this release he’s released two special covers to Aquarium Drunkard.
As a part of AD’s Lagniappe Session, Cronin has offered up two ukelele covers of two hard to miss pop songs: The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” & Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me.” Cronin and his girlfriend both have a soft spot for cheesy 80s/90s pop songs. Even though they were living in different states at the time since she could play the ukele they were able send parts to each other postal service style in order to make these covers.
You can read more about these covers over at Aquarium Drunkard, and download them below.
He will be playing Bowery Ballroom on June 20.
