    Jessica Lea Mayfield Featured on SPIN's Free Tribute to Nirvana's "Nevermind"; Performs on KFOG Before Show with Avett Brothers
    Michael Wilson

    Jessica Lea Mayfield is featured on SPIN magazine's tribute to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's groundbreaking album Nevermind. She performs the album track "Lounge Act" on the new album Newermind, on which SPIN asked some of its "favorite contemporary artists to cover the influential album's 13 songs, in their original order." American Songwriter says: "We really couldn’t have asked for better contributing artists, either." Newermind is available as a free download till July 25 on SPIN's Facebook page.

    "I love how the verse and chorus feel like they have no relationship to each other," Mayfield tells SPIN of picking "Lounge Act" as her song selection. "It's like two different songs." Read more at spin.com.

    Jessica Lea Mayfield concludes her tour with the Avett Brothers with a show at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, tonight. She continues her US summer headline tour with support from Ferraby Lionheart at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa, California, tomorrow night.

    While in the Bay Area, Mayfield gives a special private concert at area radio station KFOG's PlaySpace this afternoon. Tune in today at 4 PM PST on 104.5 FM in San Francisco and online around the world at kfog.com.

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."
