Arborea breathes ghostly life into CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising”

Every once in a blue – or in this case bad – moon, a cover song comes along that stops me in my tracks.

Such is the case with avant folk duo Arborea’s re-imagining of “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

You can own the song for just a dollar and these funds will go into the making of Arborea’s next album.

Arborea is the Maine-based married couple of Shanti and Buck Curran. They’ve released five albums and have performed all over the U.S., Europe and the United Kingdom.
