Fade Into You | Ben Harper

copycats:

"Fade Into You" by Ben Harper 

Originally by Mazzy Star

This year’s Starbucks sponsored Valentine’s Day collection, Sweethearts 2014 is stacked with musicians worth getting excited over - from Vampire Weekend to Phosphorescent to Fiona Apple and beyond - all covering love songs originally by other artists. Here is Ben Harper's fragile, heartbreaking take on Mazzy Star's classic, “Fade Into You”.

Oblivion-Katie and Allison Crutchfield

ohmeursault:

nprmusic:

So this is great: Twin sisters Katie (Waxahatchee) and Allison (Swearin’) Crutchfield cover Grimes' “Oblivion” for Rookie Mag.

I’m starting a review of all the great music I found and/or was obsessed with this year and Grimes is pretty high on that list.  Being one of the artists I was really into while recovering makes her a little more dear to me (along with Bat for Lashes) than some of the other stuff I listened to this year. She is amazing and (as much as she hates being called this) adorable and provocative and smart and I just can’t with this lady. 

I’ll post the actual songs too but this is a fun early 60’s-rock style cover of her song Oblivion.
