Bloggy Goodness: Fleetwood Mac Tribute Album

During their peak in the late 1970s, there may not have been a bigger band than Fleetwood Mac, who were arguably as famous for their musical output, as they were for their in-band relationships. On August 14, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame act’s tunes will be the subject of the new tribute album – Just Tell Me That You Want Me – that will be released via Hear Music/Concord. The 17-track release features an impressive and diverse array of indie-rock bands tackling material almost exclusively from the band’s Buckingham/Nicks years, with a handful of deep cut tracks from their blues band era.

Check out the track listing…

Lee Ranaldo Band Featuring J Mascis – “Albatross” / Antony – “Landslide” / Trixie Whitley – “Before The Beginning” / Billy Gibbons & Co. – “Oh Well” / Best Coast – “Rhiannon” / The New Pornographers – “Think About Me” / Marianne Faithfull – “Angel” / Lykke Li – “Silver Springs” / Karen Elson – “Gold Dust Woman” / Matt Sweeney And Bonnie “Prince” Billy – “Storms” / Washed Out – “Straight Back” / Tame Impala – “That’s All For Everyone” / Craig Wedren with St. Vincent – “Sisters Of The Moon” / The Kills – “Dreams” / Gardens & Villa – “Gypsy” / The Crystal Ark – “Tusk” / MGMT – “Future Games”

Finally, it’s been a big week for Justin Vernon and his Bon Iver band mates. Earlier this week the band released a seven-song iTunes Sessions digital album. The live release, which will run you $6.99 and is only available via iTunes, leans almost exclusively on tunes from their most recent self-titled album, as well as a cover of Bjork’s Who Is It? The other big news coming out of the Bon Iver camp, was that Justin Vernon had designed a signature shoe in conjunction with the folks at Keep, with the proceeds from its sale going to benefit the Best Friends Animal Society, an animal advocacy group which operates the nation’s largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals. The footwear, which will run you $75 and are currently available for pre-order, features “herringbone accents, a black fishbone detail across the toe, and a canvas upper custom dyed to a perfect pale salmon.”
