Daniel Smith & Sufjan Stevens - Worried Shoes

I have to admit, I'm not too familiar with Daniel Johnston's body of work, but I know that a lot of people love his music, and there have already been a handful of tribute albums released with various well-known artists covering his songs. The latest is called I Killed The Monster: 21 Artists Performing The Songs of Daniel Johnston, released on Second Shimmy. Among the track listing is this beautiful collaboration between Daniel Smith (aka Brother Danielson) and Sufjan Stevens performing "Worried Shoes". I didn't recognize too many of the other contributors aside from Mike Watt and Jad Fair, but instead I have included a few bonus tracks from another Daniel Johnston tribute album called The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered.

» Bonus Track: TV On The Radio - Walking The Cow
» Bonus Track: Sparklehorse & Flaming Lips - Go
