I chose “Alphabet Town” because the song distinctly reminds me of Portland, which is not only where Elliott originally wrote and recorded the song, but also where I recorded my version of the track in my basement. It’s also a track that not many folks have covered or done their own spin on, and as an enormous Elliott fan (Either/Or being my favorite album of all time), I wanted to do something unique. My intention with this cover was to make it sound like it could have been on XO or Figure 8, with a much more fleshed-out and psychedelic full band arrangement.
