Jukebox Friday: Triggerfinger - I Follow Rivers (Lykke Li cover)

(See my last Triggerfinger post here.)

This one's a twofer.

"I Follow Rivers" was originally recorded by Swedish artist Lykke Li and appears on her second studio album, Wounded Rhymes (2011). The song charted all over Europe, grabbing the top spot in Germany, Romania, and Belgium.

Triggerfinger's version was recorded live on the Dutch radio show GIEL in January 2012. The performance is notable for its sparse instrumentation, which consists of a guitar, a simple drum machine beat, a knife, a cup, and a glass.

Original Lykke Li version:
