264. Angie McMahon on KD Lang 'Hyms of the 49th Parallel' (2004)

Possessed of a voice and musical depth far beyond her years, Angie McMahon joined me to discuss KD Lang's 'Hymns of the 49th Parallel', a supreme covers album that celebrates Canada's great songwriters from Joni Mitchell to Leonard Cohen to Neil Young. Angie and I unpack why KD is such a supremely great singer, why some covers succeed and some fail, what Angie's covers record would be themed around, whether anyone should cover Joni Mitchell and more.
