Voxhaul Broadcast covered Smashing Pumpkins’ rarity, “With Every Light”, on Last Call With Carson Daly. The track appeared on the Pumpkins’ largely under-recognized concept album Machina/The Machines of God (2000). This cover is most unique, I think, mainly due to Voxhaul Broadcast’s decision to play it acoustically, though Corgan himself has performed it electrically and acoustically. On the record, however, one can barely hear any sort of guitar sound.

Now Grouper’s Liz Harris has released a video for “Alien Observation” directed by Hamish Parkinson filled with plenty of heavy water and a romance that seems to be driven towards the grave. The song is muted and taciturn—a simple hazy melody carries the whole tune- while Harris’s signature mystical coos embed the proceedings with a rich fullness.
Linda McCartney was the great muse of rock ‘n’ roll. Jack Lawrence wrote the 1947 hit “Linda” after her when she was just an infant. Practically every love song Paul McCartney wrote from 1967 to 1998 (and probably even more afterwards) was about her. She was often right there beside him, adding instrumentation, vocalizing, and co-writing along with him, but she’s hardly mentioned for her own talents. As we mark the 12th anniversary of her untimely death, let’s take a look at some of the best of her music.
“Silly Love Songs” just wouldn’t be the same without Linda’s mid-song refrain.
