David Byrne and St Vincent - Cissus
These two, any day of the week. From their new free EP, available here.
Hannah Anderson - Sophia (Laura Marling cover)
This cover is incredible. No idea who these girls are beyond what YouTube says — sisters Hannah and Sophia Anderson. Lovely.
Laura Mvula - That’s Alright
The Dodos - Confidence
New track from The Dodos’ forthcoming LP. Carrier will be The Dodos’ first release on Polyvinyl, the home of Japandroids, and a label that can do no wrong in my book.
Well, it doesn’t get any cooler than this. Astronaut Chris Hadfield playing Bowie’s “Space Oddity”… in space.
Laura Marling - Once
From her forthcoming album, Once I Was An Eagle, due May 27. So much love for this artist.
Natalie Maines - Mother (Pink Floyd cover)
It’s Cover Friday and my Mother’s visiting. Voila!
Natalie Maines doesn’t hesitate to make audacious moves, and wresting away “Mother” — Roger Waters’ hymn to oppressive maternal authority figures from Pink Floyd — is the biggest one on her first solo album. Maines takes the “Mother” from Pink Floyd’s The Wall and deconstructs it, emotional brick by emotional brick. She rebuilds the melody and radically alters the vocal intonation of the lyric to render it resilient enough for new interpretations. “Mother” becomes a plea for understanding; to come to terms with difficult relationships through love and trust. Which, among other things, could be heard as Maines’ attempt to reach out to Dixie Chick fans, both present and former, loyal and hostile.
Beyonce ft. Andre 3000 - Back To Black (Amy Winehouse cover)
Best track on the Gatsby soundtrack. That beat is raunchy.
Lauryn Hill - Neurotic Society
NEW Lauryn Hill! This doesn’t sound the way I expected, but it’s 100% on-message.
Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!
How to destroy angels_ - Between the Spaces (SONOIO rework)
Allessandro Cortini reworks this track from HTDA’s 2010 album.
