Julia Stone is prepared for the release of a new solo album “By The Horns”, which is available for pre-order at iTunes. The official release dates are May 29th in North America, the 25th in Australia, May 28th in Europe and May 30th in France. But until then, listen to an acoustic, badass cover she did for 3emeGauchetv of The National’s “Bloodbuzz Ohio” from off their 2010 record, “High Violet”. It’s a marvel of soft finger-picking and Stone’ unmistakable voice: “I stand up straight at the foot of your love / I left my shirt up / I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees / I’ll never marry, but Ohio don’t remember me / I lay my head on the hood of your car / I take it too far.” Gorgeous. — David D.
