[COVER/STREAM] I Am Noxious – “I Gotta Feeling” (Black Eyed Peas cover) & “Stranded On Love”
i don’t mind if they hear us, i just don’t want to miss out on you
- Who: He goes by “T”
- What: Genre, like XX
- Where: Copenhagen + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
- When: Release dates?
- Why: If you hadn’t read the word cover above I bet it would take you a moment (or 4) to orient your ears to the tenderly catchy sounds you are hearing in relation to the context of the original. And that, my friends, is what makes a great cover. I love feeling turned upside down by a cover. New life is breathed into stale bread. But enough about what I Am Noxious does with other people’s songs.
The man from Copenhagen has got some serious chops of his own. “Stranded On Love” is a sultry call to to the bedroom that weaves a deftly growing beat with distant bongoes and gentle moans to make the kind of jam that can dim lights just as easily as it can start congo lines. Radical. Once you are decent again check out his older jam “Flashback Tears.” What a sing-along!
