The Week In Music

The week in music –  here are all the headlines that caught our attention.

Real Estate debut a new song at the Fox 

Real Estate began their 2018 tour at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. In honor of the occasion, they pulled out a brand new song. In typical Real Estate fashion, it’s pretty chill and fits right into their “chill-jam” arsenal. Listen to it and hear the band muse on how it fell apart the first time they tried to play it live. Real Estate released In Mind last year.

Car Seat Headrest Cover Smash Mouth Car Seat

Yes, it’s true. In the same month that Car Seat Headrest re-released a much acclaimed album, they also cover 90s alt-rock band Smash Mouth. “Fallen Horses” is from 1999’s Astro Lounge. Last week, Smash Mouth covered Car Seat Headrest’s “Something Soon”.


Listen to the original for comparison’s sake.
Sufjan Stevens At The Oscars

Sufjan Stevens is piling up the Oscars love. His song “Mystery of Love” from the movie Call Me By Your Name already has been nominated for Best Original Song. This week, we learned he’ll perform the song at next Sunday’s Oscars ceremony.

Common, Mary J. Blige, Gael García Bernal, Andra Day, Natalia LaFourcade, Miguel, Keala Settle also will perform.

Hail To The Tweets
