Cover Me…I’m Going In

While we think that we’re not great lovers of covers here at MM, I’m beginning to suspect that this is actually a pretty long way from the reality of things. Especially, as just lately, there seems to have been a plethora of excellent cover versions hitting our iTunes playlists.

So here are a few that we’ve picked up from over the net and fellow bloggers that are well worth a listen or two…we have Phosphorescent covering Lucinda Williams, The Sparrow & The Workshop doing The Cars, Duke Spirit’s take on Sham 69, Warpaint and A Place To Bury Strangers on Bowie, Alex Bleeker & Evan Brody’s reverential cover of Guided By Voices, The Jim Jones Revue tackle the BeatlesDead Luke doing a Suicide classic and J.Tillman’s sparse, plucked Neil Young.

In fact, you can pick up Tillman’s loving, and thoroughly enjoyable, take on the whole Neil Young classic Tonight’s The Night over at Aquarium Drunkard for free.
