Odds And Sods From The Blog World

Heather at I Am Fuel, You Are Friends posted 19 "live and unreleased" Ray LaMontagne tracks as a teaser for his forthcoming new album. She also recently put up two new Black Crowes songs from the brothers Robinson's acoustic mini-tour. You can find "I Got The Late Nights Again" and "Cut From The Shadow" here.

Cable and Tweed has a great set of pre-Boy U2 demos posted, called "Contract Demos '78-'80". Don't know if all the uber-fans already have that stuff but it seems like a gold mine.

My Ex Best Friend
has some Coldplay rarities up. "Ladder To The Sun" is a full track, and there are also snippets of the boys covering Aqua's "Barbie Girl" and Nelly/Kelly Rowland's "Dilemma".

Also posted at My Ex Best Friend is an MP3 of Radiohead covering Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" that can be found here. I did a little research and it's actually Sparklehorse with Thom Yorke singing some of the vocals. Apparently he called in his vocal part over the phone and you can hear his TV on in the background.

Speaking of Radiohead, Hello Gina posted a version of "Creep" as covered by Damien Rice on Today FM in Ireland on 06-22-05.

Ear Farm has a fantastic series of live concert posts updated every weekend. Live sets from Sublime, Spoon, Ween, The Unicorns, My Bloody Valentine, New Order, Sufjan Stevens, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sonic Youth, Explosions in the Sky, The Smiths, Morphine, Talking Heads, The Stone Roses, The Cure, PJ Harvey, Pulp, The Decemberists, Blur, Nine Inch Nails, Johnny Cash, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Led Zeppelin, Islands, Echo and the Bunnymen, Morrissey, and The Durutti Column are available.

Muzzle Of Bees has an acoustic set from Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie that aired in 2003 on KEXP.

Ben Gibbard appears again at You Ain't No Picasso covering Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Belle And Sebastian cover "Billie Jean" as well.
