The Neighbourhood – 93 to Infinity (Souls of Mischief Cover)

The Neighbourhood has a signature sound. Sultry male vocals and a nearly hidden bass which rests in the back of all of their songs. Like the cool kid at the party. I have yet to hear one of their songs which doesn’t make you want to take your clothes off immediately. This cover urges you […]

Son Lux ft. Lorde – Easy (Switch Screens)

Deep baritone sax, unpredictable electric guitar, and a sultry, eerie voice combine to create a rich balance between Son Lux’s instrumentals and Lorde’s intermittent vocals. Although repetitive, the lyrics speak a simple message of idealized thought versus reality of human nature. If only it were so easy to inhibit the aftershock of heartbreak. How simple it is on paper, to overcome ill emotions. Easy, right? Just get rid of the pain. […]

The Black Keys – Dearest (Buddy Holly Cover)

Dearest – though you’re the nearest to my heart please don’t ever – umm ya ever say we’ll part You scold and you were so bold yes together – umm ya our love will grow old – umm ya our love will grow old You may be a million miles away please believe me – […]

New Navy – Breathe

As catalogued before on this very site, I am a nut for Australian bands. A recent find is New Navy, a duo from the Sydney area (as opposed to the far-away Perth, home to the Tame Impala/Pond/endless associated projects scene). Their sound is close to Two Door Cinema Club, though it leans more acoustic. I […]

Capital Cities – Nothing Compares 2 U

Love is treated as this whole big, amorphous concept that no one can quite explain. Is it physical? Opposites attract? Pheromones? Genetic? It’s the soul? Who knows, and frankly, who cares? When you’re in love, the answer is obvious. And it’s circular. Love is what I feel for that person. Your feeling becomes the definition. […]

Ellie Goulding — Tessellate (Alt-J Cover)

The dog days of summer are here, and New York City is literally a melting pot drenched in sweat, watery air conditioning units, and the chances of having a good hair day are slim to none. It’s not even 9 AM as I sit in my little house 34 stories up sipping the life out […]

Jai Paul – Crush (Jennifer Paige Cover)

Just who exactly is Jai Paul and what planet did he come from? Seriously, who is he? He’s one of the most enigmatic artists out there today aside from Bon Iver when Bon Iver was still Bon Iver (you feel me?). His sounds are out of this world. They spin, twirl, mix, and mash up […]

Purity Ring — Grammy (Soulja Boy Cover)

We don’t follow your norms.  We could care less what the rest of the world is “on” to, or even doing for that matter.  We control our own world, and you, are, a part of it. Purity Ring dropped this crazy Soulja Boy cover of Grammy during the actual Grammy Week 2013.  Yea we heard […]

Chromatics — Ceremony (New Order Cover ft. Ida No)

I love holidays in New York City.  It gives me a chance to breath the true beauty of such an incredible place.  My one and only, first true love, is NYC, so I’m always so excited to have the closest thing to alone time that I can with her. Ceremony (New Order Cover ft. Ida […]

Ghost Beach – Vultures (John Mayer Cover)

I’m a little late to the Ghost Beach train, but after their little fan-tease yesterday I’ve hopped on and don’t want to get off. The duo announced that they had a little treat for us and this track is it. What a treat it is! I have a secret (well not so secret anymore) soft […]
