Zachary Cole Smith, the musician best known for his role as frontman of NYC shoegaze and indie rock outfit DIIV, has unveiled a gorgeous cover of Sparklehorse’s Cow. This reedy melting, steely strumming rendition of the 90′s song seems to bring out the song’s melancholic dysphoria even more. The cover was released to promote the MTV Unplugged acoustic concert DIIV will be playing in Brooklyn next month. By the way Smith’s Cow sounds, whoever’s in the live audience for that show will be in for something magical and possibly life changing.

Florence + the Machine on MTV Unplugged

The latest episode of MTV Unplugged will feature none other than the great Florence + the Machine. Check out a couple treats from that show below. The first is a performance of the deservedly adulated Lungs track Cosmic Love, and it’s absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. I only wish I could’ve been there for this show. The next audio clip is a cover of Johnny Cash’s Jackson featuring Josh Homme. That classy Florence Welch is just so unique and brilliant.
