The Rebel Light released a really nice cover of “Be My Baby” — it stays true to The Ronettes/Phil Spector original, and adds some Beach Boy vibes:
“Jimmy Had A Polaroid” by Seattle-based band Math & Physics Club:
Real Estate played “Talking Backwards” on the Late Show with David Letterman — this performance is slightly slower than the album version of the song:
“Lion’s Mane” (by Iron & Wine) covered by Stacy from Eisley. I think it’s just a simple Garageband recording:

“Let It Rain” by Tilly & The Wall:
The Record Company headlined a sold out show at The Satellite on Friday April 4th, celebrating the release of their new vinyl EP Feels So Good.
The EP contains unreleased B-sides (which played over the Satellite’s speakers before The Record Company took the stage).
The roots/rock/blues trio consists of Chris on vocals/guitars/harmonica, Alex on bass/vocals, and Marc on drums/vocals.
The show started with Chris singing an a cappella intro before launching into the set. “On The Move” came early and sounded similar to the album version with its slightly distorted vocals.
I thought the best part of the show was the third song — the bassist played both bass guitar and harmonica on “Baby I’m Broken.”
The Record Company went on to play a bunch of songs acoustically (even with an acoustic bass), like “Hard Day Coming Down.” Sonically the songs were a throwback to the early rock and roll and blues of the late 1950s and early 1960s.
For “Don’t Let Me Get Lonely” there was lots of dancing in the audience, and The Record Company ended their show by bringing opening band The Janks up on stage for a cover of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” an old hymn.
