Penny and Sparrow - “Stoic” off their new album that drops this month.
Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon sing together
This is so much fun. I love the little cues that indicate one’s musicality, such as Billy Joel’s ability to a) hear multiple harmonies and b) swap between them.
Newy Lewis and the Hues - “Power of Love”
Ben Rector was previously seen recording a fantastic cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Want to Dance with Somebody.”
New song by The Dirty Guv’nahs, one of my favorite finds of 2013.

Coldplay pulled a Beyonce and randomly put up music without warning at midnight last night and it’s called midnight and it sounds like Bon Iver had a baby with Frou Frou and then Coldplay also and honestly?
It’s really fucking enjoyable.
The second single off the new Nickel Creek record that drops April 1.
Johnny Cash- Hurt (Nine Inch Nails Cover)
When Trent Reznor was asked if Cash could cover his song, Reznor said he was “flattered” but worried that “the idea sounded a bit gimmicky.” He became a fan of Cash’s version, however, once he saw the music video.
“I pop the video in, and wow… Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps… Wow. [I felt like] I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn’t mine anymore… It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. [Somehow] that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning — different, but every bit as pure.
I don’t really know what to add to this other than the fact that this is hands down one of the best covers of any song ever, and the music video is a total masterpiece.
Chills every time.
Dang, this is good.
And for dessert, here is their cover of “Long Time” by Boston. YES.
Nickel Creek - “Destination”
