For some reason everywhere we’ve turned recently has brought us into contact with cover songs, so we figured we ought to do our duty and collect the best of them together in one convenient place just for you.
So here you’ll find Deer Tick’s surprisingly faithful cover of an Eddie Cochran classic, Okkervil River taking on the White Stripes, Bat For Lashes doing The Eurythmics, Middle Brothers Daytrotter version of one of their album standouts, the wonderful Portland (as originally done by The Replacements). We have fuzzed up rockers The Dum Dum Girls covering The Vagrants and we have Rachel Goodrich’s version of The Shangri La’s Out In The Streets. Mrs M’s favourite Mark Lanegan takes on The Kinks and Lizzie Huffman takes on Ryan Adams and finally we have Mr West’s version of Young Folks!
These come courtesy of the some of the best blogs and music sites around, Stereogum, Daytrotter, Rollo & Grady, Side One Track One etc., – most are linked on the right in the Music links so check them out if you haven’t already.
