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.

MP3: John Mayer: Video Games (Lana Del Ray)

MP3: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr: Like A Prayer (Madonna)

MP3: Avec Sans: Perth (Bon Iver)

MP3: Benjamin Francis Leftwich: MIdnight City (M83)

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.

MP3: Futurebirds: Wild Heart (Stevie Nicks)

Take Cover Tuesday // April 5

MP3: Stephen Francis: All Of My Friends (LCD Soundsystem)

Nothing will ever touch the original, but seeing as how LCD Soundsystem is officially no more, this seemed right. We will miss you dearly…

MP3: The Last Royals: If You Leave (OMD)

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?

MP3: Passion Pit: Tonight Tonight (Smashing Pumpkins)

The Seer in me feels a Passion Pit announcement coming any day now…

MP3: Nickel Creek: Toxic (Britney Spears)

It has been 2 years since Nickel Creek took a hiatus. I think its time to come back and say hello.
