* The A.V. Club has been doing this series they're calling "A.V. Undercover." As you might guess, they have touring artists pick a tune from a list of popular songs and then cover it. Of Montreal elected to cover The White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl" (watch above), and frontman Kevin Barnes — looking, as he often does, like a fey, lanky Jason Schwartzman — talked a bit about how Jack White once waved at him, and that made him feel good. (By the way, this one turned out way better than Smith Westerns doing Tom Petty.)
* Over at American Songwriter, Davis Inman talked with kinda-sorta-semi-local Jessica Lea Mayfield about her tune "Our Hearts Are Wrong." (That's the snappy number she and her crew did on Letterman.) According to Mayfield, when she was piecing the song together with Dan Auerbach, it came out "like song vomit." Lovely.
* Legendary Nashvillian Rodney Crowell did a few numbers over at Daytrotter. Given Crowell's intro, it sounds like his daughter — herself a pretty talented songwriter — was there, but she didn't do any tunes with him, it seems.
* Oh, and Jeff Bridges' eponymous T Bone Burnett-produced record will be out via Blue Note Records on Aug. 16. Self-titled? Why not Tron Country? Or The Gig Lebowski? Or
Starman Guitarman? Et cetera.
