Cover songs are still my favorite way for emerging bands to put their own sound on a hit song and get easy attention. HoweverÂ 2012 was for some reason a slow year for cover songs. Luckily a handful of bands did them well and left us with flipped and twisted takes on old classics and net hits alike. Here are my 10 favorites (#1 at the bottom). What did I miss? Read more

Ellie Goulding’s voice has always been her biggest ally and herÂ overproductionÂ her biggest foe. Here we get a hyper minimal cover of “Lights”Â laidÂ under theÂ gorgeousÂ vocals of Wanderhouse’sÂ Marie Moreshead. It’s beautiful, haunting, and better than anything Ellie’s has ever done. (except when she does the covering) Props to producing partner Doctor Rosen Rosen for knowing when to reign it in.

Ellie Goulding came on so strong with 2009’s “Starry Eyed” and then straight fell off the game with that snoozer LP Lights. Could this inspired Weeknd cover signify a rebirth? Well, we’ll see. People forget she cut her teeth on inspired covers (that Sam Sparro one is a classic!) although the minimal production is certainly working on her delicate voice.
Aaaaand the remix. Two-steppin’! Hot feet! Keep ’em movin!

WithÂ craziness ofÂ SXSW nearly a week behind us, its feels good to be home… and although I pride myself on my party prowess- I think it will take weeks to fully recover from that madness. Â 51 shows in four days… that has to be a record for an individual party. Â In the mean time (back in reality), I’m supplementing my diet with extreme amounts ofÂ caffeineÂ and sugar. Â If Im diagnosed withÂ diabetesÂ in a week, we’ll certainly know why.
Its only thursday, but with the combo of caffeine and the sweet tuneage below, a spontanouse dance party at work is absolutely necessary. Â Get down with your self.

The October 18th release of Penguin Prison’s self-titled debut is interesting for a couple reasons. The first thing is that I didn’t know it came out until 6 weeks late. And I think the second thing is directly tied to the 1st. Penguin Prison has been around so long that it seems hard to believe that his album hasn’t been out for years! TBE has been posting singles from the album since 2009 (above) and that doesn’t even include “Something I’m Not”Â and “Fair Warning” which also came out as singles before the album came out. Add on the heavily remixed “Multimillionaire” and new singleÂ “Don’t Fuck With My Money” and Read more
