disCOVER: Foxes “Happy (Pharrell Cover)”

Whoever it was that thought that Pharrell’s cover would go perfectly over Massive Attacks’s “Teardrop” and sung by Foxes is a genius.

LIVE: Lolo “Year Round Summer of Love (Transmitter Live Session)”

Back in mid august, Lolo dropped the amazing single “Year Round Summer of Love” and people went crazy, and importnat music-y people like Zane Lowe. My exact thoughts were

"THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE SUMMER JAM, ROLL YOUR WINDOWS DOWN ON THIS ONE."

Since then, there hasn’t been too much new stuff put out there which I’m sure means that big things are to come in 2014, so until then enjoy this amazing live session of “Year Round Summer of Love” for Transmitter Live.

VIDEO: St. Lucia “Elevate”

Due to working a silly and stupidly long hour’d job in TV my Friday night shall be spent going to bed in around half an hour (9.30pm GMT). So I shall live vicariously through the St. Lucia gang and their video “Elevate” which is what I wish my life was like. Enjoy.

Also, check out this fabulous stripped back live cover they did for Fender Airstream.

LIVE: Mutya Keisha Siobhan “Flatline”

Them harmonies, damn.

For some reason “Flatline” just isn’t doing as well as it deserves, its a great pop song and there is genuine love out there for it but unfortunately that isn’t translating to the commercial/mainstream just yet. If you had any misgivings about the songs, the reunion or the girls please listen to this amazing acoustic rendition of “Flatline” for SBTV

Download “Flatline” from iTunes.

LIVE: Kanye West “Blood On The Leaves (at the VMAs)”

This isn’t going to be the performance that everyone remembers from that night but Kanye West’s understated “Blood On The Leaves” was my highlight. The staging and lighting completely complimented the song, especially when it came to the TNGHT drop. Like with the SNL performance of “Black Skinhead”, I think the live version of “Blood On The Leaves” is far better and effective than the studio. 

And that Lady Gaga performance was dope too.

Mary Lambert: “She Keeps Me Warm”

As much as I love Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love”, it is the chorus that gets me everytime. And this is simply beautiful.

Buy “She Keeps Me Warm” here.
