Its been a while since I checked out The A.V. Club’s Undercover Sessions (bands come in, pick a song, cover it) but tonight I did and found this charming cover of Robyn’s best known song. Night Beds put a 90s melancholic spin on the track and make it work.
London’s Daughter has been steadily creeping onto the scene with hauntingly beautiful tracks for the last few months, taking names and breaking hearts effectively. She stopped over at BBC Radio 1’s Live lounge this past weekend and decided to put her stamp all over a song that is so completely the original artists its almost unfair. And you know what, she nails it. Yeah, Daughter turns Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” into a slow, brooding, late night treat and it still sounds great.
Daughter’s debut album If You Leave is out now, check out the beautiful “Human” here.
disCOVER: Daughter “Perth vs Ready For The Floor (Bon Iver/Hot Chip Cover)”
Daughter have been skirting my radar for the last six months or so and now they seem to be doing some big things. Last week they were iTunes free download of the week with the amazing “Human”. They recently dropped round BBC Radio 1 to record this amazing mash up of Bon Iver’s “Perth” versus Hot Chip’s “Ready For The Floor”. No lie it sounds amazing, a stumbling along piece of laid back indie genius that manages to fit both songs perfectly.
I’m not sure if you’re aware but the original line up of the sugababes, Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan have been back in the studio with one of my favourite producers Dev Hynes (Solange, Blood Orange etc.) I am SUPER excited for whats going to come from those sessions but for now Dev Hynes has just given us this, the girls messing around in the studio with dazzling harmonies over Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools”.
And here’s a little taster of new material, an a capella version of “Boys”.
disCOVER: AlunaGeorge “I Wanna Be Like You (The Jungle Book Cover)”
AlunaGeorge’s Aluna Francis is gonna be a star. That look, them vocals. Good golly miss molly. Here’s the duo putting their touch on a disney classic, The Jungle Book’s “I Wanna Be Like You” originally performed by jazz legend Louis Prima. It was recorded live for BBC Radio 1.
disCOVER: Shadows On Stars: “Little Bit (Lykke Li Cover)”
Mmmmm, this is very very nice.
Here’s Shadows On Stars post-r&b take on Lykke Li’s “Little Bit”. The vulnerability of the original is filtered through a more melancholy vibe in this outing by this Portland duo. Also check out the rest of their music because its pretty good, especially “When it Builds”.
disCOVER: Fun. “Anything Could Happen (Ellie Goulding Cover)”
BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge is a bit hit and miss at times, but when it hits it knocks it out of the park. Case in point, Fun.’s cover of Ellie Goulding’s big life affirming tune “Anything Could Happen”. (they returned the favour when Goulding covered “Some Nights”.
