Noah and the Whale vs. Bright Eyes ("Devil Town" covers)


Saw that You Ain’t No Picasso posted up a new Noah and the Whale cover of Daniel Johnston’s “Devil Town”. It’s good, but I still like the old Bright Eyes cover better. Noah and the Whale’s version seems a little lazy and removed. Part of the beauty of Daniel Johnston was the emotion you could hear in his voice. Bright Eyes always had that whole expressing emotion thing down, so a Daniel Johnston cover seemed fitting. Check out both.

Vivian Girls – "Tell the World" and "Where Do You Run To"


Didn’t pay much attention until Gorilla vs Bear ranked the Vivian Girl’s self-titled album as one of the best of the year (in the top 5). I checked them out, and I should write a thank you card to GvsB. Awesome album. Vivian Girls is a new, lo-fi garage rock band from Brooklyn. They are an all-female trio with some great harmonizing and a nice, fuzzy sound.

Far – Pony (A rock version of Ginuwine’s "Pony")


I wouldn’t have thought that a rock cover of “Pony” could be so perfect. Saw it at Dramatic Annie’s. And I know I said I wouldn’t use this Chris Brown photo again, but I had to.

New! Q-Tip ft. Kapone – Evolution of a Man


Nice bluesy beat on this one. After hearing the beat, I didn’t think the rapping would sound so smooth on top of it, but Tip and Kapone pull it off very well. Off of Cadillac Records. Thanks to XlusivesZone.
