Thelma Plum • Gold (Chet Faker Cover)

I’m still working on this month’s new playlist, but for now I leave you with another excellent cover from the Like A Version series. It’s Thelma Plum doing her own take on Chet Faker’s ‘Gold’.  (more…)

Wayne Wade – Lady (Kenny Rogers Cover)

Wayne Wade – Lady was one of the jams we found in Papsoul’s mixtape while he drove us in his blue Opel Corsa across the Belgian-German border. This cover of Kenny Rogers’ classic was piled up inside a USB drive along with reggae roots remixes of Adele songs and more.

Lissie – Pursuit of Happiness (Kid Cudi Cover)

Kid Cudi makes a lot of good music for when you’re on the road, but I don’t see many artists making covers of his work.
