Soulful funk-pop-rockers Gardens & Villa are back, with a tour with Minneapolis musical kins Polica on the books. To solidify the relationship is a remix for Polica’s “The Maker”, made all the groovier after being run through a G&V filter. Tour dates include MusicfestNW in Portland, where they will be rocking a main stage with Beirut and Menomena.

Those who have seen G&V live will also note that Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” is often paid slight homage, and it seems a likely extension that they would cover a Fleetwood Mac song. Below is “Gypsy”, covered for the Beverly Hills label Concord Music Group, as a part of their Just Tell Me That You Want Me: Tribute To Fleetwood Mac. You can hear the song in isolation or stream the entire comp below. As band member Adam Rasmussen says, “[‘Gypsy’ is] sensitive and timeless. Recording it was a beautiful experience. We’re really thankful for this opportunity.”
