Gardens & Villa Add Cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy” to Tribute Album
What a long, strange trip it’s been for Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa. Seems like just yesterday Adam was crafting macchiatos at The French Press. A year or so later the band has signed to Secretly Canadian, put out its first album (highly-regarded, produced by Richard Swift), and toured extensively, capped off by playing at this year’s Coachella Music Festival. To add to the largesse, the band has now contributed its cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Gypsy to the new FM covers compilation, “Just Tell Me That You Want Me.” You can check out Gardens & Villa’s cover over at Paste. And below you can check out 10 other tracks off the compilation, including those by the great Antony (doing a surprisingly straightforward read of Landslide), The New Pornographers, and Lykki Li. As we’ve said before, we preferred the pre-Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac (with the late, great Bob Welch), but acknowledge we’re virtually alone in this preference. Enjoy.
