Gotye- ‘Somebody I Use To Know’(Geffen) : Taking musical and visual cues from Sting and Peter Gabriel, Gotye released a great song that is very vocally driven and soft. The song also has a great music video that you should check out.
Jonathan Wilson- ‘Gentle Spirit’(Bella Union): This song is the title track from Wilson’s 2011 album. The song is a beautifully composed track that sounds like a mix of Elliot Smith, CSNY, and John Lennon’s solo work. Check out the live version of this song below.
Coheed & Cambria- ‘April Come She Will’(Columbia): This is a great cover of the Simon & Garfunkel tune. Coheed’s lead singer Claudio Sanchez has a great vocal performance on this track. Hopefully we will hear a new Coheed record soon.
