One of my favorite websites in the whole world (THE WHOLE WORLD) is The AVClub. It’s an offshoot of The Onion, and there’s a wittiness and humor about it that definitely shows its roots, but it’s largely a straightforward pop culture site, offering movie reviews, tv recaps, music features, and general obsessive analysis of all things pop culture. Can’t get enough.
The last few years, they’ve been doing this series called Undercover, where they invite very cool bands to cover all manner of awesome songs new and old. I am obsessed with this, as they tend to offer really unexpected and interesting interpretations of a lot of songs I’m super into, by bands I listen to a lot.
