Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet - Taiyang Chulai
Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet - Great Big Wall in China
A couple of tracks from a great album that came out late last year. Would have made my top 10 if I'd heard about it. These are Bluegrass covers of Chinese folk songs - not something I would think would work but they do perfectly.
Sufjan Stevens - You Are The Blood
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - Inspiration Information
Two of the best tracks from a very good charity compilation Dark Was The Night that also features standout tracks from My Brightest Diamond, The New Pornographers, Yeasayer and a great duet between Conor Oberst and Gillian Welch.
Mahotella Queens - Umculo Kawupheli (No End To Music)
Came across this on a Youtube clip posted on a blog. Being a big Bow Wow Wow fan I was enlightened to see that their See Jungle track is a note for note cover of this. Both are excellent.
