Download Nevermind tribute album feat. Meat Puppets, Vaselines, Titus Andronicus, Jessica Lea Mayfield…

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind, SPIN convinced some bands to cover each track from the album for a tribute record: Newermind. You can see the full tracklist and download it for the price of your email address and a “Like” at SPIN‘s Facebook page.

As far as the most interesting part of this project, I’m in agreement with SPIN editor Steve Kandell, as told to NPR: “The most intriguing angle was getting bands like the Meat Puppets and the Vaselines, who were famously covered by Nirvana, to finally repay the favor, and with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Lithium,” respectively, Nevermind’s two best-known songs, at that.”

Jessica Lea Mayfield: You’ve Won Me Over

MP3: You’ve Won Me Over

Here’s a song from the debut full length album from 18 year old Kent, OH singer/songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield. It was produced by Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys.

I first heard her thanks to a post on I Rock Cleveland. The album is a great combination of lazy, strummy folk that sometimes goes a little twangy, and it sometimes goes in the direction of Mazzy Star.

Be sure to check out her MySpace page for a bunch of tour dates.
