It’s funny how often you find something when you’re not looking for it. I was listening to a Lumineers song earlier and for some reason or another one chord reminded me of the Swingin’ Utters. When I googled Fruitless Fortunes I came across this cover by the Fucking Buckaroos (I couldn’t make that up if I tried). It was so…
