1. Aloha & The Johns

    Jenny Lewis


    May be my favorite song off “The Voyager” so wonderful!

    The new JL album is a good time.

    This Must Be The Place (Talking Heads cover) - Brothertiger

    one of my favorite songs 

    happy cover friday

    Talking Heads covers always hit the spot for me.  Nice one from Fred.

  3. West Coast (Cover)

    James Vincent McMorrow

    West Coast - James Vincent McMorrow (orig. by Lana Del Rey)


    The best thing you’ll hear all day.

    Happy Cover Friday to everyone.

  4. PHOX - Slow Motion (Live - Lawrence HS, Room 125 - Lawrence, KS)

    This one’s for kirklove.  We both have a thing for Monica’s voice.

    Bonus: Q&A with the band after the song.

  5. Thirteen Sad Farewells - Stu Larsen

    The title alone got me to this track, and then this Aussie singer/songwriter’s smoothness pulled me in.

  6. tuneage:

    Berlin Bar Hounds - Le Rambles

    With a lead singer, Jacob Borg, that’s a dead ringer for The National’s Matt Berninger’s baritone, it’s not hard to immediately like Berlin Bar Hounds’ Le Rambles. 

  7. She's Not Me

    Jenny Lewis


    This album is perfect! You can listen to the full album on NPR. It’s wonderful! Has to be one of my favorite records of the year so far.

  8. Bad Habit - The Kooks


  9. Higher - Lia Ices

    The guitar that kicks in at the 1:10 mark makes this track for me.

  10. Falling Rain - Reigning Sound - Shattered

    We have rain this morning.  This song makes things a bit less dreary.

    There’s a whole lot more to this story, than the sound of falling rain

  11. Seasons (Waiting on You) - Slow Club (orig. by Future Islands)

    My Slow Club binge continues for Cover Friday.  They turn this great Future Islands track into a slow burner.

  12. Sad Lover - Mark Lanegan Band

    Mark’s voice is just as rough and tumble as ever.

  13. The New Pornographers

    War on the East Coast


    War on the East Coast - The New Pornographers 

    I can’t get enough of this song! 

    Like this one a lot. It’s a Dan Bejar track that sounds nothing like most Dan Bejar tracks.

  14. Mess is Mine - Vance Joy 

    Toe tapping Aussie folk-pop.  

  15. tuneage:

    Jenny Lewis - Just One of the Guys

    Look, I’m not saying you’ve always wanted to see Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Tennessee Thomas lip synching to a Jenny Lewis song, wearing a crisp white suits and dressed as men in track suits (with handlebar mustaches!) but you totally did.

    Something about Anne Hathaway holding a keytar feels so right.
