Cool Music Stuff on the Internet - The Killers do U2, Brushfire Records Best of 2012, Ben Gibbard, Wallflowers

Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie fame has been on NPR a bit lately promoting his new solo album, check him out here on Tiny Desk Concerts.  He was also on World Cafe with David Dye, which is one of the more interesting and politely intriguing interviews I've heard in awhile.

More of this please. (via Stereogum)

Brushfire Records recently posted a short yet stellar list of their Greatest Hits of 2012. hint: Neil Halstead makes an appearance.

The Wallflowers, who have recently 'reunited' were also recently on World Cafe, where they played a live set, sounding quite good, actually.  Pay special attention to the first track they play, "Love Is A Country".

Cover Me Songs has 5 covers of Dream Academy's hit "Life in a Northern Town".  One of them is Rick Springfield. Not even kidding. Check it out.
