Happy heatwave weekend! Yes, it’s going to be very HOT in LA for the next few days so I wanted to post a musical treat – Wilco covering the Velvet Underground’s “Who Loves the Sun”.

Ever since I heard this earlier this week, I haven’t been able to get it out of my head!

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Wilco performed 29 covers at the Solid Sound Festival last weekend. It was an incredible array of ipcks – from Thin Lizzy to Daft Punk and the Grateful Dead. They hit on some of my very favorite songs and hearing them in “Wilco” style is such a treat.

You can find them all streaming and available for download here.

Stay cool!
