I’ve never been to Coachella before but comparing this lineup to the Lollapalooza lineup, I have to say I am pretty jealous. That Sunday lineup is a force. I can’t imagine what it would be like to see Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, Pavement, Phoenix, Spoon, Jonsi, Yo La Tengo, and Sunny Day Real Estate all in one day.

Speaking of Coachella, the LA times has a nice write-up on the xx in anticipation of Coachella. And for those playing the drinking game at home, yes it includes several references to SXSW.

Surfer Blood is featured on the latest installment of Dirty Laundry.

I know this is kind of old but I love Buddyhead’s review of the new MGMT record.

The AV Club this week has JTE covering Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City.” Apparently, the Hold Steady have covered this song as well.

I was listening to the Rogue Wave station on Pandora and this awesome cover of Pinback’s “Loro” came on. It was by this guy called Adem, never heard him before and I can’t find a link to his cover but it’s definitely worth a listen if you come across it.

And if you haven’t had enough covers by now, here are some Lady Gaga covers:
