Father John Misty Streams Hilarious MIDI Version of New Album 'I Love You, Honeybear'

Buzz 12:46PM EDT

These days, it seems as if every big album has to be streamed online for free before its official release date, but singer-songwriter -- and former Fleet Foxes drummer -- Josh Tillman, better known as Father John Misty, has found a sly way to get around that. According to "Stereogum," Tillman has made his upcoming studio album "I Love You, Honeybear" available for streaming on his website through a new streaming service called SAP, but instead of uploading the actual studio recordings, Tillman has uploaded instrumental MIDI versions of the entire album, and it sounds hilariously awful.READ MORE

Fleet Foxes's Robin Pecknold Writes Music for Off-Broadway Play 'Wyoming'

Buzz 15:20PM EDT

It has been nearly four years since we have heard a new Fleet Foxes album, but today it was revealed that Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold has composed the music for an upcoming off-Broadway play titled "Wyoming," which was written by Pecknold's cousin Brian Watkins and directed by Danya Taymor. According to "Stereogum," Pecknold co-wrote the music along with percussionist Neal Morgan, who is best known for his work with Bill Callahan and Pecknold's old touring partner Joanna Newsom — perhaps that is where they met? According to "Broadway World," "Wyoming" is a "biting, brilliant family drama about buried memories of a confounding childhood crime" produced by Lesser America. As of right now, Pecknold has no plans to record or release his score, which means you will have to go see the play, which runs from Jan. 15 to 31 at Theater for the New City in New York City. You can purchase tickets for "Wyoming" here. Fleet Foxes's most recent album "Helplessness Blues" was released in 2011. It was the Seattle band's second studio album overall, following their self-titled, debut album from 2008. Most recently, Pecknold embarked on a tour with members of Grizzly Bear, Wye Oak, Beach House and The Walkmen celebrating the music of late Byrds member Gene Clark.READ MORE

Because cover songs don't garner nearly as much traction on the radio or the charts as they once did, artists these days treat them more like fun little experiments, where they can try out things they normally wouldn't on one of their albums or original singles. This has resulted in plenty of inventive and fascinating covers, especially this past year. Here are the year's 10 best cover songs (in no particular order).READ MORE
