The Last Shadow Puppets – I Want You (She’s So Heavy) (Beatles Cover)

The wonderful delightful side project of the Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (The Rascals) are on of the bright spots of 2008 for many obvious reasons. Not only is Alex Turner one of the brightest songwriters of this generation, but then you add his good buddy Miles to the mix and they complement each other perfectly. A little less than a week ago at their gig in Amsterdam they played a cover of the Beatles classic ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’ and it is fantastic for sure. It stays true to the origianl song, and it does it plenty of justice. Download the mp3, or watch the live video. Or both!

The Killers – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

The Killers are an entertaining band. They aren’t afraid to show a different side every now and again. They are only this daring live I suppose….

The Chairs- In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel Cover)

I haven’t been able to find much into on this band. I stumbled upon this cover and thought it was great. They are a band from Wisconsin that just finished up some recordings, so hopefully we will be able to find out more! Visit their website to listen to more songs!
