Guilt By Association

By now you've probably heard about the upcoming Guilt By Association compilation. The project essentially involves your favorite indie artists covering your favorite so-called "guilty pleasures." You've got Petra Haden covering Journey's karaoke classic "Don't Stop Believin'" (a cappella style mind you!), Will Oldham tries his hand at Mariah Carey, and Devendra Banhart takes on those Beatles' apeing brother's Gallagher. (Although if you ask us, there is no shame in enjoying a little old-school Oasis, and if there is, well, consider me totally guilty.)
The album hits stores September 4th. Here are some fan-crafted videos that won a contest set forth by the GbA's creators. Enjoy!

Devendra Banhart - Don't Look Back in Anger (Oasis Cover)
