Thom Yorke - All For The Best

Thom Yorke contributes cover song to
Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy.

Click the play button to listen. Right Click title to download.

The compilation's 21-track lineup is impressive, the reason behind it -- the sudden death of Mulcahy's wife Melissa, leaving him to raise his three-year old twins alone -- heartbreaking.

The opening track, Thom Yorke's percussive, electro-tinged cover of Miracle Legion's "All For The Best," is also impressive, making it his own, while retaining the spirit of the original. As a result, fans of Radiohead, Miracle Legion, and Mulcahy should equally enjoy.

The full album is out 9/29 via Shout! Factory. An additional 20 tracks from folks like A.C. Newman, Buffalo Tom and Laura Veirs will be released digitally. Also expect concerts to coincide with the release. One will take place in London, one in New York

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

Sibling band Kitty, Daisy & Lewis play 40's/50's rockabilly and swing, country and western, Hawaiian and rock 'n' roll with a skill and energy that connects them to the past and ensures they'll be around in the future. Between them, the trio play guitar, piano, banjo, lapsteel guitar, harmonica, double bass, ukulele, trombone and accordion, swapping instruments between songs at their super-energetic live shows. The live shows started out as just Kitty, Daisy and Lewis performing with various guitar players providing a rhythm. After a while, they felt it worked best playing with their dad (Graeme) on acoustic guitar and their mum (Ingrid) on double bass.

'We play old music but we're playing it now,' says Lewis. For them, it's heroes like Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Johnny Cash, Wynonie 'Mr Blues' Harris and Roy Brown who are on iPod rotation.
