“Hey Jealousy” Gets the Supergroup Treatment

I’ve enjoyed the AV Club’s recurring “Undercover” series, where they have bands come in to cover songs picked by their readers. (Wye Oak’s cover of the Kinks’ “Strangers” is probably the highlight.)

Today offered another fun one as Cursive and Cymbals Eat Guitars teamed up to cover the Gin Blossoms’ “Hey Jealousy,” one of my all-time guilty pleasures. Fun stuff.)

Get Into Classical

Just wanted to share a great resource for beginning to listen to classical music. Get Into Classical offers an easy start for the non-initiate. There are some some gentle introductions to the genre, recommendations for pieces to start with and then profiles of classical eras and composers. The text is fun and light without pandering to the reader. I worked my way through the whole site and found a lot of music I enjoyed (and some I didn’t—sorry Shostakovich!).
