disCOVER: Alex Winston “Everlasting Light (The Black Keys Cover)”

Today The Black Key’s latest El Camino arrived and it is bloody brilliant and as an added bonus news arrived of a debut album from Alex Winston along with this cover of The Black Keys Everlasting Light. I’ve been a big fan of Alex Winston since I heard Choice Notes and Sister Wife. She’s made a helluva lot of noise without releasing a full length debut until now and King Con is due March 5th.

Remix Baby: Alex Winston “Velvet Elvis (RAC Remix)”

They’ve done it again. RAC have yet to release a remix that we do not like. Here’s their remix of Alex Winston’s Velvet Elvis. It’s classic RAC, and RAC are becoming classics.

disCOVER: Alex Winston “The Cave (Mumford & Sons Cover)”

Alex Winston is a great new quirky American singer songwriter. There are a lot of them out there but we think Alex Winston still has a place. Here is her take of Mumford & Sons’ The Cave. (and we’ll throw in an original of hers, Choice Notes)

Alex Winston // “Sister Wife” from Sister Wife Mini LP

Alex Winston has the potential to become America’s next great quirky female solo artist to contend with the slieu that is coming out of the UK at the moment.

The opening of Sister Wife cannot help but remind of Yeasayer’s Madder Red, which is no bad thing. From there it moves into a song in its own right, to catchy verses and even catchier choruses. Other songs to look out for on the Sister Wife Mini LP are Medicine and Locomotive (which is reminiscent of Passion Pit, though don’t get me wrong Alex Winston definitely puts her own stamp on things)
