With high profile summer festivals constantly trying to find new and interesting ways to reveal their lineups, Lollapalooza figured out a way to do it that will have the whole internet talking.
Honestly, this song is kind of perfect. The album version features Mumford & Sons, and the whole thing is just terribly intense. It’s going to be pretty awesome to watch Laura Marling continue to grow as a singer and songwriter.
Nightjar is a sextet based out of Indianapolis (see, local-ish), which formed in 2007 as a duo and quickly gained members after that. With influences such as the Old 97’s, Wilco, and Ryan Adams, Nightjar has a decidedly alt country sound, but the music is so much more than that.
While their own original music is fantastic, it’s hard to resist this soulful take on the popular Wilco song. And what could be better than an up-and-coming Chicago band covering a true Chicago musical legend?
You can tell that summer is rapidly approaching, given the number of festival line-ups that are tumbling in. The Newport Folk Festival, in (where else) Newport, Rhode Island, has announced its lineup for its 2010 festival.
