Beach House Gets Kids' Chorus Treatment

They're baaaa-ack! The indie rock-covering kid's chorus from PS 22 in Staten Island, New York wasted no time learning this dreamy song from Victoria Legrand and Alex Scalley.

These talented and expressive children previously covered "Litzstomania" by Phoenix and appeared on Passion Pit's latest. Millions have viewed their videos.

Check out another wish-you-had-a-music-teacher-like this moment with this super version of this Beach House's "Zebra!"

According to Spinner, Legrand wrote on Beach Houses's Facebook and Twitter page, "This is one of the best things ever to happen to us!"

A Trucker's Deep Fried Home Remedy

Who knew that fried chicken had healing qualities for a bass guitar?

Shonna Tucker and her Drive-By Truckers bandmates play a sold out show at the Recher Wednesday night. DBT's new one The Big To-Do rocks with Southern storytelling at its novel best! Big highlights include Patterson Hood's courtroom drama, ala City Confidential, "The Wig He Made Her Wear, " and Mike Cooley's character study "Birthday Boy." Shonna steps up her songwriting and singing, sounding like a 70's-era Emmylou on "You Got Another." Cooley will join me for Morning Sessions next Friday.
