Capital Cities – Nothin’ Compares 2 U

To identify with a track means several things. One, you are trusting in an artists’ capability to dictate your emotions. This is first and foremost. Two, you feel something while listening to the track. That’s the part where your emotions are in someone else’s hands. Whether you feel terribly, euphoric, or like listening to the […]

New Navy – Breathe (Télépopmusik Cover)

  This week from monday through thursday was really fast-paced and hectic for me. And while I was enjoying it, it was only yesterday I found out that today was a god-sent holiday! It’s as if life was telling me: just pause for a sec, and breathe. Very few people take a classic original and […]

Sexton Blake – Human Nature

There is never not a bad time of day to bust out some Michael Jackson tunes.  Portland, Oregon babies, Sexton Blake, bring us their hauntingly faithful rendition of Jackson’s toned-down ballad, Human Nature from his Thriller era. Some nice after-effects gives the track its mellow, needle-on-the-record feel. Sometimes this audio-esthetic can really grind my gears and […]

Little Pictures – Buddy Holly (Weezer Cover)

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to post this, I feel like I am whistling it in my head every week and listening to it on my stereo in my car so I must apologize for being an air head and keeping this one to myself for so long.  But this […]

Edwin Van Cleef – Lisztomania (Feat. Jane Hanley), Phoenix Cover

This cover has been out a few weeks but this is for those who have yet to stumble upon this amazing cover of Lisztomania by UK native, Edwin Van Cleef. The cover features a different spin on the vocals from Australia’s Jane Haley who sings with fervor giving the track a new vibe to groove […]

Alphabeat – Digital Love (Daft Punk Cover)

Just like your local organic food store, we’re all about keeping things fresh. So we’re adding some themes to certain days. Yeah, we like creating expectation. So in addition to sample saturdays, we’re adding La Reprise De Mi-Semaine, a wednesday dedicated to a cover version of our choice bound to shake all of our preconceptions […]

Klaxons – No Diggity (Blackstreet & Dr. Dre Cover)

I went out last night and next thing you know the suns out and it’s Friday morning… I’m still up and have a huge to do list before getting into the weekend so this is going to be a quick one. Been posting a lot of new music lately, time for a throwback, a cover […]

Peter Bjorn & John – Let’s Call It Off (Drake Cover)

Peter Bjorn & John’s fifth studio album Living Thing is due for release in about a week. I’ve had the album for a while now but every time I sit down to check it out I end up listening to Writer’s Block, the third studio album released by the Stockholm trio in 2006 and by […]

Bat For Lashes – Use Somebody (Reprise de Kings of Leon)

I’ve been following Kings of Leon for quite sometime now and everytime I think they’re about to succumb to the pressures of success I’m proved terribly wrong. From indie to mainstream every KOL album has shown musical growth and creativeness equal to or better than the last. When Sex On Fire was leaked last year I was convinced it […]
