In honor of Lana Del Rey’s new single “Honeymoon” dropping last week, I’ve rounded up 5 quality covers of Del Rey’s past work from Born to Die and Ultraviolence. Her next album, titled Honeymoon as well, is set to be released September of this year. These five covers stood out in a sea of contrived covers, so here’s to these talented musicians for making their own spin on the forever-mysterious chanteuse’s work.
While exploring the NAMM show, we dropped by the Bedell Guitars booth and were lucky enough to get some one-on-one time with the man himself, Tom Bedell. Here Mr. Bedell shares a Wildfire parlor model, although the guitar is available in an orchestra or dreadnought body as well. Towards the end of the clip, Bedell calls upon guitarist Zach Runquist who gives us a thorough demo of the beautiful looking (and sounding!) instrument.
It’s summer! Yahoo!!! Time for sitting on the porch and strumming a tune or two, or three, or ten! This is not a “best of” list, just a collection of great, easy to play songs that’ll put a smile on your face…and everyone’s around you, too! So grab an iced tea, sit back and get your strum on!
Check out this bonus acoustic track of Owl’s “Alive.” A bit groovy. A bit mysterious. And more than a bit awesome. This stripped down version of what is obviously a heavy song incorporates strings, guitars and boomy bass.
A few weeks ago we met up with songwriter Drew Holcomb for this exclusive live video session. We already shared his performance of “Tightrope,” which you can watch right here. Today, here’s Holcomb’s performance of “American Beauty,” the second track from his latest album, Medicine.
Here’s a groovy cut to start your week off right. It’s Lost Element’s acoustic video version of their song “Twenty Five.” The studio version of the track appears on their upcoming album Stereo Dream, due out this Fall.
The Running Roots are a true snapshot of being an artist in 2015. Through ups and downs (read: music business) they have not faltered their belief in themselves nor their passion and focus in their music.
Here's our final installment in our trio of excellent acoustic videos from the sisters of Larkin Poe. It's their original song "Stubborn Love." With chops that have put them on stage and on tour with the likes of Elvis Costello, Conor Oberst and more, Larkin Poe share their substantial original talents on their latest album KIN.
