I realized today its been nearly a year since we last “took cover” so to speak… and thats just plain bogus! So to make it up to you I’ve compiled a few of my favorites from the past few months. And just like that Tuesdays are relevant again.

I’m seeing Georgia’s Futurebirds tonight in Jackson Hole and keeping my fingers crossed that they close their set with a rendition of Stevie Nicks’ “Wild Heart.” The track is featured on the band’s latest EP Via Flamina, available via their bandcamp page. The song is one of my favorite covers of the year. Download the tune below and catch the birds on tour this fall.

Tuesday April 5th, 2011 09:31 Take Cover Tuesday // April 5
Nothing will ever touch the original, but seeing as how LCD Soundsystem is officially no more, this seemed right. We will miss you dearly…
If ever they decided to remake Pretty In Pink (which im sure will happen any day now), this cover should most definitely be used. Dare I say its better than the original?
The Seer in me feels a Passion Pit announcement coming any day now…
It has been 2 years since Nickel Creek took a hiatus. I think its time to come back and say hello.

With Adele breaking chart records and The Strokes back in a big way, this cover is especially fitting.
We love us some McMorrow here at Sloane. Have you purchased his album yet?
Rolling In The Deep is one of my favorite singles of the year thus far. I applaud this cover.
This will give you wet nightmares.
