On their upcoming collaborative record, Iron & Wine and Band of Horses frontman Ben Bridwell decided to cover mostly lesser-known songs. This Talking Heads cover is one of the exceptions on Sing Into My Mouth.
After giving us a track that included relatively sparse but still uncommon instrumentation (Sagres, which featured percussion and strings), The Tallest Man on Earth has released another song from the album Dark Bird Is Home that’s truer to form. The record’s title track is just Kristian Matsson and his guitar, the way we’ve come to know him.
My Morning Jacket just released another new track from their upcoming album, The Waterfall. In the sprawling musical missive Spring (Among the Living), Jim James sings about the season of transition, transformation and resurrection.
Courtney Barnett’s ambling lyricism and laid back delivery are applied to perfect effect on Depreston, a song about the slow realization that you might not be in the happiest of locales. Her new album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, is out March 24 via Mom + Pop Music.
Lucius has been covering My Morning Jacket’s Wonderful during live sets for a while, and now we finally have the Brooklyn band’s version of the song on tape. It’s on the deluxe edition of Wildewoman, which is out digitally Oct. 4 and physically Nov. 25.
