News… Roman Lakes and Caoilfhionn Rose Team Up For Joni Mitchell Cover

Tomorrow we’ll be starting our series of special tunes that’ll keep you feeling festive in the run up to Christmas Day. It was going to be the 12 Days Of Christmas, but because Manchester’s Caoilfhionn Rose and Roman Lakes have teamed up to cover Joni Mitchell’s beautiful ‘River,’ we felt that we needed to make…

News… Kill J Covers ‘Barbie Girl’ And It’s Great

‘Barbie Girl.’ Almost a one hit wonder for Aqua in the 90s which was replete with questionable gender stereotypes and a man who didn’t sound or act like Ken at all. Oh and it really annoyed a lot of people. Probably because it was high-pitched and squealy. Maybe. So really, you’ve got to have some…

News… IYES Cover The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’

At this point, if you haven’t heard The Weeknd’s semi love song to heroin (yes, yes, it’s about drugs not sudden onslaughts of paralysis when you’re with your significant other) then you’re probably either an astronaut returning from a very long and forgotten mission or you’re a Medieval time traveller who just arrived in 2015…

News… Equals Cover Sade’s ‘No Ordinary Love’

Alongside ‘Smooth Operator’ and ‘Paradise,’ ‘No Ordinary Love’ might be considered Sade’s signature tune. It’s got that all-too-smooth and silky feel to it, and it won her a Grammy for best R’n’B Performance by a Duo or Solo Artist with Vocals in 1994. Even though she’s essentially a crooner, Sade exudes the kind of effortless…

News… Natalie Prass Covers Grimes’ ‘REALiTi’

Today’s the day that Natalie Prass releases her five-track EP Side By Side, essentially a slightly stripped back way of allowing her to cover a few of her favourite songs and rework two originals in the Spacebomb Studios of Eels man Matthew E. White. She’s already covered two standards, Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound of…

News… Glass Face Cover Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’

It’s a Timmy Thomas-sampling, foot-stomping, dad-dancing R’n’B belter, and Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ is probably one of┬áthe most infectious track the Canadian rapper has ever released. Well, if you can ignore his meme-worthy moves in the video. They’re a bit questionable. Fellow Canadians Glass Face have decided to take on the track themselves but since they’re…

News… Wet Cover Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’

Hello, is it an ADELE cover you’re looking for? The British belter is currently continuing her bid for world domination with her latest single ‘Hello’ and that was closely followed by a chirpy little cover by The Maccabees for Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Another distinctly different cover came from Brooklyn-based three-piece Wet, who have delved…

News… EL VY Cover Fine Young Cannibals

Image: Deirdre O’Callaghan EL VY (sounds like the plural version of Elvis) is the wonky-pop, semi-electro collaboration of The National’s chief baritone vocal master Matt Berninger and Menomena multi-instrumentalist Brent Knopf. They’ve just kicked off a tour of the US – much to our chagrin they’re not coming anywhere near the north east of the…
