The gaycondo band aka Swallows (featuring Jon + Em) will be releasing their upcoming album, Between the Sea and Sky in the coming months.

As we come closer to the event we will begin to leak a few songs off the album.

The first is a cover of “Distant Fingers”, originally written by the Patti Smith Group in 1976 and is featured on their classic album, Radio Ethiopia

For all the sonic nerds out there, we thought we would let you hear both Swallows’ version and the original and compare notes.
