Music For Your Monday

This weekend has come and gone faster than you can way “woah it’s Monday?” and that means that Little 5 week has officially begun. You’ve had the whole year to either prepare for a bike race or prepare your liver for utter destruction and I wish you the best in whichever endeavor you chose to undertake. But first, enjoy this week’s Music For Your Monday.

Death Cab covers this classic from the Smiths and despite jumbling up a few words, I really think this is good. Ben Gibbard’s voice is nearly perfect for the song and he’s just able to convey so much emotion.

Woooo another cover! Here’s another one of my favorite bands (Bon Iver) covering another one of my favorite bands (Spoon). Justin Vernon of Bon Iver released this hauntingly beautiful cover to promote his Eaux Claires music festival, which features Spoon as one of the headliners. As per usual for Bon Iver songs, this cover features sonic distortion makes the song sound so different that Spoon’s original version. I wish it was longer.

Florence and the Machine released As Far as I Could Get on a special Record Store limited edition record as the b-side to What Kind of Man.” Featuring her signature soaring vocals, this song like the singles she’s released so far from her upcoming album, have these tension-laden, angry lyrics that are so different than the lyrics of her previous albums.

Did you go to Coachella this weekend? Did you wear a flower headband and tell everyone you know about the ~good vibes~ in the California sun? Did you at least hear this duet with Florence and Father John Misty? If you didn’t make it out to the desert, you can still enjoy this beautiful rendition, in the comfort of your own climate-controlled room, sans flower headband.

Big Sean is coming to Btown tomorrow for some little 5 festivities so I thought we could take a trip down memory lane to revisit the best Big Sean track where he’s overshadowed by every single guest verse.
