It’s well documented that I love this song, and I’ll say for the record that I love Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus - Jolene (Dolly Parton)

Miley would be a good candidate for a Rick Rubin produced album.

Springsteen just released a studio version of this Suicide cover that doesn’t hold a candle to the way he used to perform it. Even with shitty sound, this is one of my favorites. 

Hannah Anderson - Sophia (Laura Marling cover)

This cover is incredible. No idea who these girls are beyond what YouTube says — sisters Hannah and Sophia Anderson. Lovely.

Natalie Maines - Mother (Pink Floyd cover)

It’s Cover Friday and my Mother’s visiting. Voila!

I’ve always been a fan of the Dixie Chicks, and I like this new solo album a lot. Give it a spin on Rdio or Spotify


Our pop music critic Ken Tucker on the title track from Natalie Maines’ new solo album, Mother:

Natalie Maines doesn’t hesitate to make audacious moves, and wresting away “Mother” — Roger Waters’ hymn to oppressive maternal authority figures from Pink Floyd — is the biggest one on her first solo album. Maines takes the “Mother” from Pink Floyd’s The Wall and deconstructs it, emotional brick by emotional brick. She rebuilds the melody and radically alters the vocal intonation of the lyric to render it resilient enough for new interpretations. “Mother” becomes a plea for understanding; to come to terms with difficult relationships through love and trust. Which, among other things, could be heard as Maines’ attempt to reach out to Dixie Chick fans, both present and former, loyal and hostile.
