More Beck Covers, and Spaceland on WEDNESDAY Night!

After covering The Velvet Underground, Beck Hansen takes on another large undertaking of work, in the latest installment of his 'Record Club' series, this time covering Leonard Cohen.

I will always stand firm in my belief of where cover songs stand. Unless they are truly "re-imagined" by the covering artist, the original will always reign supreme. Check out "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye" by Beck below.

I also wanted to mention Samuel Stewart's show at Spaceland Wednesday night, for Club NME. We're giving away two free tickets! Just email us at, for your chance to see him live. His live performance is surely worth checking out.

I had the pleasure of seeing his exclusive performance at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park a few weekends ago. Although it was a brief set, it certainly was an intimate and enjoyable one. If you're expecting the offspring of a famous musician to be Kardashian-like and spoiled, Stewart is not your man. Tiny in stature, his sound is quite large. Fans of The Decemberists should see him live. Check out "Devil Music" below. Visit the Facebook event page HERE.
