Lion Sized gives Nathaniel Rateliff's "Shroud" an unexpected but completely gratifying goose

Only in Denver would you see something as heartwarmingly incestuous as this: This past weekend, during its UMS set at 3 Kings Tavern, the ferocious lads of Lion Sized turned in a supercharged version of "Shroud," a typically sedate tune by the illustrious Mr. Nathaniel Rateliff. Here the dudes crank up the distortion and render the lovely ballad nearly unrecognizable. Enjoy the goodness below, then catch the dudes on Friday, August 12, at the hi-dive, with Ending People and Land Lines.
