Thirdstory – Death with Dignity

Sufjan Stevens is one of those artists that you either love with a raging abundant passion or you just don’t understand. Last month, Sufjan released a live version of his critically acclaimed album “Carrie and Lowell” along with a film version on YouTube. On Friday, he released a collaborative concept album called “Planetarium.” And yes, […]

Snakehips ft. MØ – Redbone

I think it’s safe to say that Donald Glover a.k.a Childish Gambino is having the best year ever. He won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series. His album “Awaken, My Love!” debuted at #1 on the R&B charts. And he is currently staring in the Han Solo Star Wars spin […]

José Gonzáles – Heartbeats

This weekend I re-watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The cinematography in this film is absolutely breathtaking but what really makes it special is the incredible soundtrack featuring mostly José Gonzáles. Gonzáles has this dreamy, whisper-y voice that feels like the perfect mixture of (the artist formerly known as) Cat Stevens and Iron and Wine but with classical guitar. Perhaps one of […]

Dirty Loops – Circus

Happy Friday ya’ll! Since the last post was pretty depressing, I thought I’d feature something more fun and upbeat! Today I bring to you a jazzy rendition of “Circus” by Pop goddess Britney Spears covered by the Swedish band Dirty Loops. When it comes comes to cover songs, this is about as original as it gets. This song […]

Chris Cornell – Nothing Compares 2 U

Get ready to cry. I am sure, by now, you’ve heard of the tragic death of Sound Garden front man, Chris Cornell. It’s such a horrible shame when talented creative people end their lives at a young age. What would 90s grunge and alterative rock have been without the help of Sound Garden, from which we […]

Feel Good Inc. – Leo Moracchioli

Have you heard the new Gorillaz album yet? I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. It’s no Demon Days, that’s for sure. There are some really interesting moments, but overall it was received with less than critical acclaim. But I still really love Damon Albarn. I could easily listen to him sing for hours. You gotta give […]

He Loves Me – Lianne La Havas

Happy Friday, folks! Today I am featuring the Jill Scott classic “He Loves Me” covered by beautiful singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas. This was actually the first song ever I heard from Lianne La Havas. As you might guess, I was immediately hooked because she is so talented! Of course, Jill Scott is the duchess of modern R&B. Like many people, […]

Paper Planes – Slumberjack ft. K. Flay

Remember when I said I’d be featuring more Triple J radio stuff in the future? Well, mama don’t lie. This cover is fresh! It was just posted on April 27. Australian DJ duo Slumberjack teamed up with experimental hop hip artist K. Flay and a three piece string section to deliver this haunting version of the 2007 hit […]
