Unexpected R&B covers

Spotted a couple of unexpected indie covers of some R&B favourites recently…and then went searching for more.

There’s no question over the R&B revival that’s happening right now – and has been for the last couple of years. New artists like Trey Songz, J Cole, Jesse Boykins putting their own twist on the legacy of music that soundtracked…

Yellow Ostrich – WHALE

This wasn’t the first track of theirs I heard. “Marathon Runner” came first – with its steady pace and spurring momentum I reckon it’d make a great running track.

Friends – I’m His Girl

Serious contender for my track of the year…

14TH – Hide Yourself

Found this gem of a track on blahblahblahscience – their myspace says soul/tropical but I completely agree with blah…this could be 90s garage. Not speed-garage….more bordering on house. 14TH – Hide Yourself 14TH are actually 2, Tracey Duodo and Tom… Continue Reading →
