Not to introduce this CMGcast by immediately directing you to two others, BUT: this is as good a place as any to point out that, for the first time, our most recent Fantasy Covers podcasts are available on our Soundcloud page as full playlists. We’ll be doing the same with the rest of our Fantasy Covers archive—many tracks from each are already up in incomplete playlists, and we’ll be filling those out in the coming weeks—and we’ll also be making many of the songs available for individual download.

For now, though, enjoy revisiting our two ’80s cover compilations from 2011 and 2012, featuring covers by Julianna Barwick (T’Pau), Majical Cloudz (Hüsker Dü), Friendzone (Prince), A Sunny Day in Glasgow (the B-52’s), Jessica Jalbert (the Replacements), Roommate (the Cure), Rae Spoon (Whitney Houston), Algodón Egipcio (Janet Jackson), Rich Aucoin (Stevie Nicks), Jenny Hval (Paul Simon), and many more:

…oh, and, uh, there’s also this new CMGcast, which is sorta spring-y and uplifting for at least eight of its fifty minutes, between sections of the It Follows soundtrack and songs about fucked-up kid dreams/George W. impressions/brain problems, so dive right in:
