Thoreau – Girls Love Beyoncé (Rework)

Oh man I have definitely been about some covers lately.  I want the old jams playing in my head and I don’t want to let them go but sometimes I want to sprinkle a new sauce on that jam to get a different flavor.  Thoreau does a nice job of spicin’ up Beyonce jams that we […]

EMPT Premier: Lil Uzi Vert – You Was Right (Lauren Sanderson Cover) [Launch Kontrol Remix]

Really excited to be the first to premier this one.  A fantastic twist on the original, cover/remix with beautiful vocals by Lauren Sanderson.  When I first started to listen I was immediately taken by the vocals but then the unexpected twist happens about 38 seconds thru and you take yourself from a euphoric day at […]

Ibeyi – Better In Tune With The Infinite (Jay Electronica Cover)

Not many words are necessary to describe this song, and if you watch below you’ll see for yourself. It’s simple and to the point. It somehow evokes multiple spouts of goosebumps with beautiful harmonies and minimal percussion. The twins of Ibeyi took out none of the soul of Jay Electronica’s original, but twisted it in a […]

TEEMID & Joie Tan – Crazy (Gnarls Barkley Cover)

There was something so pleasant about that place Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” is one of the most memorable songs of my teenage years. I first discovered it as a freshman in high school. I went to visit my childhood best friend in England and she had just bought “St. Elsewhere”. So we listened to it incessantly and […]

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. […]

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 […]
