Under Cover

Playing someone else's music can be high risk and high reward. To me there is nothing like falling in love with a song for a second time or getting introduced to new artist via your current favs. Here are two fairly recent offerings.

Chan Marshall as Cat Power with her album Jukebox. Catch her doing send ups of Billy Holiday, Hank Williams, and Sinatra.

Austin's Okerville River drops Golden Oppurtunities. Covers of John Cale, Joni Mitchell, and one of my favorites, Serge Gainsbourg. Not only are they dropping covers, but Radiohead inspired, the live mixtape is free.
