Molly Tuttle and Golden Highway have released a cover of Jefferson Airplane’s 1967 hit "White Rabbit," available only on Amazon Music. "I have loved the story of Alice In Wonderland since I read the book as a kid and played the Queen of Hearts in my school play,” Tuttle says. "Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane is from Palo Alto, CA, just like me, and this song gives me the nostalgic feeling of growing up, but recording it also pushed my band forward into new territory musically." Tuttle and the band can be seen on PBS's The Caverns Sessions this Saturday.

Singer, songwriter, and guitar player Molly Tuttle and her band Golden Highway have released a cover of “White Rabbit,” Jefferson Airplane’s 1967 hit written by Grace Slick, available only on Amazon Music. You can hear it here. Tuttle’s take on the tune coincides with the AmericanaFest, happening this week in Nashville, where they played a showcase last night.

“I have loved the story of Alice in Wonderland since I read the book as a kid and played the Queen of Hearts in my school play,” Tuttle says. “I chose to cover ‘White Rabbit’ back in the fall of 2020 for a live stream of songs by San Francisco Bay Area artists. Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane is from Palo Alto, CA, just like me, and this song gives me the nostalgic feeling of growing up, but recording it also pushed my band forward into new territory musically. This is the first song I have arranged, produced and recorded from the ground up with the band members that I've been on the road with all year. Golden Highway—aka Shelby Means, Dominick Leslie, Kyle Tuttle, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes—and I have formed a strong musical bond after playing almost 100 shows together this year. Each band member brought ideas to the table, making this a truly collaborative effort.”

Tuttle and the band can be seen on PBS stations across the US on The Caverns Sessions, formerly known as Bluegrass Underground this Saturday. The set was taped deep within the subterranean amphitheater of The Caverns in Tennessee's Cumberland Mountains. You can watch a preview performance of the title track to their debut album, Crooked Tree, here:

    Björk's new podcast series Sonic Symbolism, in which she explores each of her albums, one per episode, focuses this week on Biophilia, her 2011 album, app, and musicology curriculum. "One of the things that really influenced me during Biophilia,” she says on the show, “was the element table. I really liked to connect nature with musicology, and connect with it raw materials, so it’s not human scale. It’s not tables and chairs and violins and humans and these interactions … [but] places where there are no people, which is either inside the atoms or in galaxies.” You can hear the episode here.
