I’ll admit it, in sixth grade I used to love the song Devendra covers on the upcoming guilty pleasure cover compilation album Guilt by Association. The myspace page for Guilt by Association went live yesterday and is now streaming Devendra’s rendition of “Don’t look back in Anger”, as well as Will Oldham’s take on the Mariah Carey number “Can’t take that away.” Both songs of which are involved in a music video competition where anyone can submit their video for the songs to be premiered on pitchfork, mtv and rolling stone. Which actually sounds like a pretty good way to get your film work seen with a bigger audience. For more information and to hear Devendra and Will’s covers head over to the Guilt by Association myspace page here.

As if things didn’t finish off last week oddly enough for the duo, I recently discovered that Cocorosie have been arrested and can no longer perform the rest of their tour dates. Sent out in a myspace bulletin the two announced the following:
we are so sorry to announce that we cannot play the rest of the us tour dates
the band got arrested, thats all i can say
we love you all
we are playing a free show in New York on may 19th
please come if you can
we are crying
say a prayer for our band
Sierra and Bianca
While the reason for their arrest is still under speculation, I read somewhere that the reason for their incarceration was due to a lack of work Visas…?
