Good Cover Version: London Grammar Does Fleetwood Mac

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I stumbled upon this one just by chance, and I’m quite glad I did. London Grammar‘s interpretation of the Fleetwood Mac classic “Dreams” is just gorgeous. The powerhouse vocals don’t have that mystical spriteliness of Stevie Nicks, but still cut to the emotional quick. A wonderfully tender, bittersweet rendition ...

When a band goes dormant for 13 years, it’s not uncommon for an eventual return to involve a recreation of their sound. Luna, the NYC-based guitar crew, took a bit of a different approach to their comeback — they’re recreating the sound of other acts. In the fall, Luna will release an LP of covers entitled A Sentimental Education, along with a six-song EP of original instrumentals called A Place Of Greater Safety. Both are due out on September 22 via Double Feature.

Tenor Saxophonist Tom Tallitsch Puts Out His Best, Most Darkly Intense Album

Source: New York Music Daily

Tom Tallitsch is one of the one of the major composers in jazz right now and a dynamic force on the tenor sax as well. As a radio host, he’s also advocated for under-the-radar artists from the New York jazz scene. His latest, excellent album Gratitude is streaming at Posi-Tone Records; he’s leading a quartet this Saturday night, May 6 at Minton’s, with sets at 7 and 9:30 PM; there’s no cover, just a two-item minimum at the bar.

This is a very emotionally charged record; the unifying theme is sad departures and welcome arrivals. The opening track, Terrain, is ...

So this is a total treat: last weekend when Stevie Nicks was in town, Candice Martello of local indie rock project Hemming caught the show, and was inspired. She cooked up this lush, layered and aching rendition of the Fleetwood Mac song “Dreams” in her home studio as a tribute to one of her favorite songwriters. “She told me to follow my dreams and so I covered the song ‘Dreams’,” Martello wrote on Facebook, noting that it was recorded in her basement in South Philly “because it’s too cold to be anywhere ...
