A big thank you has to go to the wonderful cover-folk blog Cover Lay Down for bringing this track to our attention. The Deadly Gentlemen is a experimental jam-folk project of Crooked Still banjo player Greg Liszt (with equal input of the other five members Stash Wyslouch, Mike Barnett, Dominick Leslie and Sam Grisman) and their latest single is this incredibly sharp acoustic cover of Vampire Weekend’s “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance”.

The video for “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance” was shot at The Deadly Gentlemen’s in Brighton, MA (filmed by Liszt) and is also available to download on the band’s Bancamp here. Check out the video below:
