Best Coast, MGMT, the Kills and more cover Fleetwood Mac for upcoming tribute album

A Fleetwood Mac tribute album featuring covers by Best Coast, MGMT, and the New Pornographers, among others, will arrive Aug. 14.

Randall Poster, who also organized the Buddy Holly tribute album Rave On Buddy Holly, is producing the album. Covers slated for the release include Antony Hegarty’s version of “Landslide” and Lykke Li’s take on “Silver Springs.”

This isn’t the first time Best Coast has covered Fleetwood Mac. The band, who released a video for Golden State romp “The Only Place” last week, debuted a “Storms” cover on BBC Radio in late April. On the upcoming tribute, they’ll take a crack at “Rhiannon.”

What Music To Watch: Franz Ferdinand on 'Jimmy Kimmel', Lykke Li on 'Carson Daly'

Late night music alert, Mixers: Franz Ferdinand will play two songs on Jimmy Kimmel this evening, and the lovely Lykke Li (woah, alliteration!) will stop by Last Call with Carson Daly. Unfortunately, neither of the two Franz Ferdinand songs will be their cover of Britney Spears’ "Womanizer." (Am I completely crazy for loving their rendition of it?); they will be playing their Tonight: Franz Ferdinand dance-rock tunes "Ulysses" and "No You Girls," however.

As far as Lykke Li goes, she will be doing a cover — her take on Kings of Leon’s "Knocked Up." Both artists will be heading off this weekend to Coachella, a place where I’m sure I’m not alone when I say: I want to go to there. Desperately. (Be sure to check back to the Music Mix for Whitney Pastorek’s impressions of the festival.) Until then, watch the video for "No You Girls" below and catch both artists on TV tonight.
