Cool Music Stuff on the Internet - Coldplay Covers, Bon Iver, Washed Out, Iron and Wine
With the release last week of Coldplay's new album, Mylo Xyloto, this list of Coldplay covers has surfaced (via Stereogum). There are some great covers like Ellie Goulding's "Don't Panic", Aimee Mann doing "The Scientist", and Weezer doing "Viva la Vida", but the one to single out is by far Willie Nelson doing "The Scientist". Willie gives this song a sense of background and wisdom it could never have being sung by anyone else. Its quite exquisite. Check it out HERE.
As per usual, Later....with Jools Holland had Bon Iver in recently. Pitchfork has video HERE.
REM has released two videos for their very last single, "We All Go Back to Where We Belong". Prepare to have your heart broken HERE (via We All Want Someone To Shout For)
Washed Out visited Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW and performed "Eyes Be Closed" HERE
Pitchfork has a wonderful video of Iron and Wine's "Flightless Bird, American Mouth":
