A mouthful of bluegrass diamonds

This made us smile today: A cover of Phantogram's "Mouthful of Diamonds" by local bluegrass/Americana band Eastbound Jesus. The original Phantogram is embedded after the jump.

Eastbound Jesus just played a sold out show at Caffe Lena last week, and they're on the slate for Bellstock in the Catskills July 19. (The multi-day event is organized by local concert promoters Guthrie Bell and features a bunch of local acts.)

What's up with Phantogram? It sounds like they have a new album -- and tour -- lined up for some time this fall.

Am I missing something? lol the EBJ link goes to a link about Lyme disease.

Also, I went to high school with these guys- they are great! So happy for them.

I know that Eastbound Jesus are purveyors of ADK rock, but having their name link to the doctor search article on Lyme disease was, well, odd. May I suggest http://www.eastboundjesus.com/

@Kayla, Andrew: Erf. That was just a copy/paste fail on my part. Fixed. Thanks.

Enjoyed that very much, thank you.

I recommend that they practice their vocal harmonies a bit more before recording

Wish they open the old McCormick road between Albany and Bethlehem for walkers and bikers so more people would have access to the trail from the Westmere, Albany, and Guilderland side.
