Music Monday : A great cover...

I dig good cover songs done by artists who put their own flavor on them in a amazing way. Here is a really great one by Bon Iver, that I recently came across...

I'm starting to really like him. His look and demeanor at the Grammy's was humble and charming.

You all have to listen to JC Brooks and the Uptown Sounds version of "I am trying to break your heart" by Wilco. It's fabulous!

One of my favorites is Kathleen Edwards' Six O'Clock News covered by Paul Jacobsen & The Madison Arm (though I'm clearly a bit biased). Can be found here on a Fuel Friends post:
