Jamie xx - Sleep Sound
When it comes to this dude right here I’m particularly very biased and/or speechless with his work. It’s so amazing, words don’t even do it justice. I personally think every Jamie xx song should come without any sayings (to keep it relatively simple just like the single cover arts), so you’d better off listen to it for yourself, yes? Forthcoming 5 May on Young Turks.
Man I hate Facebook. I should’ve just refrain from using that in entirety, but then again the chances people would notice if something new is up would be like zero to none.
Third installment of our weekly playlist; still basing itself off beats and bass in general. Keep you eyes peeled for more coming up!
Glovvess - Agoraphobia (Deerhunter cover)
With December just hanging beyond the corner, that calls for a 2013 music round-up; and as you know 2013 is basically packed with awesome releases I-can’t-even-name-my-favourites-on-top-of-my-head-right-now, I might as well need yall help with that later.
Anyway, there’s a little Black Friday (I know we’re not in the US but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) surprise upon opening my inbox this afternoon. There goes a mail from a familiar household name which I had talked about a few months back, this time with a cover of Deerhunter’s Agoraphobia. I immediately felt bad for myself postponing downloads on my P2P client including Monomania, thus if you ask me I’ve never listened to them before and I can’t really pinpoint what this cover has to offer compared to the original. Heh. Though, I’m very surprised the person who sang on this cover is that quiet bro who usually locates himself behind his laptop and fiddles around with a drum machine. A spot-on take, I must say. His vocals blend interestingly well with the atmospheric, lullabye-ish soundscape, close to a point where it sounds more like an original track rather than a remake. I’d like to see more of these incorporated in a live setting or better yet, these guys take turns handling the microphone singing one full song each. Major props!
