Good enough to make this gray Monday all that much raddlier.
Evan Rachel Wood, Chris Evans and a seductive scenario from bar to boudoir. That's enough to titillate the senses, eh? Add a dollop of Bat For Lashes covering Depeche Mode's Strangelove, and we're deep in the throes of "whoa my god's" and all that hullabaloo. Smoooookin'.
Directed by Frank Miller, the graphic novelist responsible for Sin City, the clip and cover comes from the parfumerie's latest campaign for Gucci Guilty, a new fragrance for women.
Safe to say that we are wildly impressed with all of this, scent unseen, errr smelled.
Gucci Gucci Guuuuud.
Never thought you'd see a Seal song here in these pages, eh? Nor did I, but when Brooklyn's Yeasayer heads down under, specifically to Australia's Triple J show to crush a cover of Crazy, the results are fantastic. It's like getting a kiss from a rose. #immediatefacepalm for that innuendo.
This happened on Tuesday morning, but it's about to tickle your fancy today. Everything Everything, that British art rock band who draw wildly affecting sounds of math rock, post-punk and electropop into one fun substance, took to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, and as all good performers do, went with a cover of a currently popular tune. Oh nah nah, what's their name? Everything Everything doing doing Rihanna Rihanna justice justice with with What's My Name, What's My Name.
Snagging backing vocals from Sunday Girl (who previously wowed us with a revision of EE's Photoshop Handsome) and Lianne La Havas, their funky, reggae-tinged and soulful cover of the chart-topper has me begging for more.
Hey, let's play it again... Oh nah nah, oh ya ya!
I don't know what you were up to this weekend, but Björk was busy hitting up Rekjavik’s Nordic House to attend a karaoke marathon to support an environmentalist petition. She also manned the mic with a cover of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart. That's all you really need to know.
Sometimes, when you least expect it, you find something ever so soothing, and yeah, it's precisely what you need at that very moment in time. So enter Catherine AD today (who is no stranger to these pages), with a simple and sublime cover that's intended to make you feel real feelings. There, I said it. My heart is warmed.
With this blanketed take on Sleigh Bells' Run the Heart, the songstress makes my knees go weak and my heart even softer. In other words...
...I love it.
What a mouthful of a song title, and thankfully, it's quite the earful as well. Earlier this year, Cherry Ghost released their sophomore album, Beneath This Burning Shoreline, and now with new single We Sleep on Stones available, we flipped the disc, errr, well, there's a b-side. And it is fantastic.
The Bolton, England outfit tackles a classic cut with their cover of CeCe Peniston's Finally, and turn the tune from hopped up house to a brooding beaut. Time and Space Machine provide the official edit, and you can buy CG's new single with this fix here now...if you live in the UK.
This is a wower.
And instruments. But mostly, I'm pretty infatuated with Brett Domino's "hither come nerdish genius" interpretation of a number of top of the pop chart toppers. He's done Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ellie Goulding, and now he's graced us with a medley of Nelly Furtado tunes that span her entire career. Check out the video now, which features the songs: Maneater, Promiscuous, Say It Right, Turn Off The Lights, I’m Like A Bird and Night Is Young; all whilst using objects like kazoos, iPhone xylos, keytars, shower heads, bucket tops and more. More amazing than you can imagine.
Well, it's new Amy Winehouse. No seriously, it really is. She sounds like she's got a mouth full of marbles even more so than ever. Either that or she stroked out.
Regardless, this makes us super excited for what very well may have opened the floodgates to that new album she's been hinting at for like 4 years. Mark Ronson produced this cover of Leslie Gore's It's My Party, which is taken from the upcoming Quincy tribute album, Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. Wait, weren't they fighting?
