Best Cover: Angus and Julia Stone

Angus and Julia Stone are superstars in Australia: It was national news when Rick Rubin convinced the brother-sister duo to reunite for an album last year. They showed Americans why with a great afternoon set, bridging the divide between harmonized folk and prog-rock: Imagine Pink Floyd with a banjo. And because it was National Siblings Day, they ended the set with a hug. The high point was a cover of "You're the One That I Want," from the Grease soundtrack. Julia Stone explained that when they were kids visiting their grandparents, there were only two videocassettes in the house, Grease and The Blues Brothers, and called the tune "A song about finding the right person but they haven't quite figured it out yet." Then she sang it solo, not as a duet, starting slow and bluesy but gradually building until she had explored every inch of its unrequited passion.
