Thanks to Astromono I have discovered covers are a big part of the stuff I listen to daily. Just another wonder of writing over time and seeing where you end up.
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’.
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.
I’m thinking of making a series of mixtapes or articles that share more music in a short span of time. I just have way too many jams to share and this one-song-a-day deal ain’t working for me!
This remix of King and Cross by London Grammar‘s Dominik ‘Doc’ Major comes included in the deluxe limited edition of Ásgeir’s new album, In The Silence, which comes out in November 24th.
To be honest, I don’t often listen to Ásgeir other than that cover I shared last week, but as I see every week they come up with something new I might end up previewing their album next month. Even the remixes.
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. That’s where Lissie comes in with her take on ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ which is basically a manual for how to roll like a boss in life and feels fucking awesome to listen while on a bus to the beach.
Ásgeir from Iceland made a nice cover of Stolen Dance, a pretty sad yet upbeat song by Germany’s Milky Chance which is not precisely a Friday jam, but it’s pretty tight nonetheless.
