This weekend Liza Richardson of L.A.'s KCRW premiered Modest Mouse's contribution to the Rave On Buddy Holly tribute album, due June 28 (the same record on which the Black Keys' cover of Holly's "Dearest" will appear; contributions from Lou Reed, Florence + the Machine, Cee Lo Green, Paul McCartney, and more will also be included).

You can listen to Modest Mouse's "That'll Be the Day" on KCRW's website; fast forward to the six-minute mark.

In case you haven't heard it, here's the Keys' "Dearest":
