You might remember that last year locally-based art pop band City States released a cover of the Police classic "King of Pain" in honor of Valentine's Day. For 2012, they decided to keep offering up their spin on moody love songs by taking on an R.E.M. track. They chose "You are the Everything" off Michael Stipe and company's 1988 album Green, and took it into a more melancholy, atmospheric direction. You can take a listen and grab a free download below, or head over to the City States' Bandcamp site, where you can also check out the band's recently-released debut EP Resolution.
