Watch Real Estate Cover The Cranberries’ “Linger”

Real Estate The AV Club

The A.V. Club runs a video series called “Undercover”, where they bring bands in to their office and allow them to play a cover. Only, it has to be one of the covers that they have on a list, and once a song is taken, you have to choose from the songs other bands have passed over.

Real Estate recently stopped by and ended up cover The Cranberries “Linger.” It works out very well, sounding like it could have been one of their own songs.

Find the cover below.

Tonight Arcade Fire began their 3-night jaunt at Barclays Center. I got photos and a review of the show coming tomorrow. It was a powerful and memorable performance, as usual.

On The Reflektor tour they have been covering songs of a locally affiliated band at each show. For their first NYC regional cover of the weekend, they did Buster Poindexter’s (The New York Dolls’ David Johansen) “Hot Hot Hot.” This came after The Reflektors (big heads) rocked out New York Dolls’ “Personality Crisis.”

They also worked in a very brief cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends” that went right into “Keep The Car Running.” It was all but a tease. Hopefully we get a full LCD Cover later this weekend.

Find both covers posted below.

Watch Real Estate’s La Blogothèque Session

A few weeks back La Blogothèque posted the session they did with Real Estate in Paris. It all went down in a living room, where the band (just Martin, Matt and Alex) did an acoustic set that featured their usual material, plus a few treats. They played unreleased track “White Light” as well as a fun cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”

It’s a great session. Enjoy it below.

Foo Fighters at Firefly Music Festival 2014

Foo Fighters will release their long-awaited new album later this year. Their set at Firefly didn’t feature any news songs, but that’s alright. Foo Fighters have a storied career full of songs that made up for the lack of new material shared – plus some surprises as well. Firefly did well by scheduling no one else around the Foo’s, giving everyone who wanted to see them the rightful chance.

The last (and only other) time I saw the Foo Fighters was at MSG back in 2008, and as far as I can recall, they came out with just as much fire and passion as that show. Dave Grohl was eager to please the Delaware crowd, bringing up the lovely memories he had of past visits, recalling the smell of Delaware food spot, Grotto Pizza. Guitarist Chris Shiflett played sitting down as he is healing a broken ankle, but even so the band came out fighting, opening incredibly with “Times Like These.”

Spoon at Le Poisson Rogue (June 9, 2014)

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2014

On June 9 Spoon played a intimate show at Le Poisson Rogue that and followed up their set at Governors Ball only a few days before. The show was hosted by NPR Music and was actually an early matinee show that took place at 2 p.m and was RSVP only – which understandably sold out immediately. The time preventing the room from being as packed as it should of been, making it all the more intimate.

The 11-song set was more or less a trimmed version of their Gov Ball set, with the addition of Girls Can Tell’s “Anything You Want.” along with the premiere performance of new single “Rent I Pay” which was then broadcasted online by NPR (the video is posted below). It’s off the band’s upcoming new album They Want My Soul, which will come out on August 5 via Loma Vista.

The performance might have been even sharper than Governors Ball, especially with the premiere of “Rent I Pay”, which sounded terrific along with other new songs “Rainy Taxi” and “Knock Knock Knock.” The addition of Alex Fischel does a lot for them live, as he brings a tremendous amount of energy and can seemingly do it all, whether its rock out on the guitar, add some vocals, or hammer out the keys.

Find the “Rent I Pay” video below, along with the show’s setlist.
