Givers – That Was Your Mother

Folk legend Paul Simon will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his classic album, ‘Graceland,’ this August. Various indie artists are paying tribute to the landmark release with a music video series covering songs from the record. The first one up is Givers and their rendition of ‘That Was Your Mother.’

Givers are joined by legendary saxophonist Dickie Landry, who has worked with Paul Simon himself, Bob Dylan, Talking Heads and more. Givers have a strong connection with ‘Graceland’ as they grew up listening to the Simon classic.

“Most of us grew up with that album in our household — it’s probably made its way into our subconscious, and it’s influenced the way we play as a band,” singer-guitarist Taylor Guarisco told Rolling Stone.

The Louisiana band and Landry give ‘That Was Your Mother’ a slower pace while staying true to the original. Their take on the song would perfectly fit any weekend afternoon BBQ.
