Song of the Week: “Go Dig My Grave” by Lankum


Lankum – “Go Dig My Grave”

Lankum, a contemporary Irish folk band from Dublin, perform their rendition of this traditional suicide ballad beginning in the Appalachian tradition.  But over the course of the song the droning background albums build up to something stranger and darker.  It’s absolutely gob-smacking!
