Porridge Radio have delivered their cover of Wolf Parade's "You Are A Runner And I Am My Father's Son", which is the a-side of their Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6 entry.

After sharing their cover of The Shins' "New Slang" last month, Porridge Radio have released the a-side, which is a cover of Wolf Parade's "You Are A Runner And I Am My Father's Son".

Both will will appear on an upcoming 7", released as part of the subscription-only Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6.

Washed Out has also released two songs today (9 August) as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6. The tracks are titled "Sidney's Lullaby" and "Miles' Lullaby", both are which named after his sons.

Ernest Greene says of the tracks, "Much like every other musician who was forced to stop touring because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I spent a lot of time at home and because of quarantine measures spent more time with my two young children than I ever have before. As any parent can tell you, it is an amazing experience seeing them discover the world around them and their minds are so pure, honest and open. I thought these two instrumental sketches had a sweetness and playfulness about them that characterised certain aspects of their development during this time. I tried to capture both of their unique spirits but also the tenderness I feel for them as their father."

He adds, "Perhaps these songs might come across as too personal or sentimental - like sharing an intimate family photograph with a stranger. However, I hope that listeners might think back to their own childhoods and how it felt to have such an innocent view of the world around you."

Porridge Radio and Washed Out's Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6 tracks are out now.
