Philly’s Dave Hause is a touring machine. Following a knockout XPoNential Music Festival set with his band, he promptly headed overseas for a European headlining tour, where he’s about to play the UK’s storied Reading Festival this weekend. In between, he took a few minutes by a placid lake in the Czech Republic one afternoon to shoot a cover of fellow XPNFest artist Jenny Lewis: an acoustic rendition of her super-catchy “Just One of the Guys,” the single from this year’s The Voyager.
Lewis’ original is orchestrated and poppy, but very introspective and melancholy at the same time. As for Hause, few people do introspection like him; with fervent strums and his soaring vocals, he makes the song his own, so much so that I hope he’s cooking up some sort of full-band rendition that we’ll hear down the road.

Hause wraps up 2014 with a swing of West Coast tour dates supporting Hot Water Music, which runs through November. We’re psyched to hear more from him in 2015.
