It's not all about music anymore...



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…

More James Vincent McMorrow

Heads up – I may come across as a bit of a James Vincent McMorrow groupie in this post…I don’t really mind though, every time I hear something new from him I rave for a while. I last posted about… Continue Reading →

Kopecky Family Band – My Girl

As if this song wasn’t sweet enough already – most people in my general age-range tend to think of 11 year old Macaulay Culkin, Anna Chlumsky and their awkward yet heartwarming “first Kiss”. I came across this beautiful heart-on-sleeve acapella… Continue Reading →

Darkstar – Gold

Silly me thought it was Thursday yesterday, when actually it was Wednesday. So there are two more posts…this being the first. Slowed down, minimalised (don’t think “minimised” is the right word here…) version of The Human League 80s synth-pop “You… Continue Reading →

Grant Lee Buffalo – In My Room

This probably isn’t the first song that comes to mind for most people when they think of rain. There isn’t an obvious lyrical reference to rain, no rain sound effects, it doesn’t even mention water (unless you count crying)… but… Continue Reading →

Jamie Cullum – Frontin’

There are only a couple of NY-themed posts to go – I’ve decided to skip some because the photos weren’t so clear. Right by where we were staying near Union Square is a fantastic brunch restaurant called Danal. Not only… Continue Reading →

Summer Camp – I Only Have Eyes For You

The Flamingos version of I Only Have Eyes For You (Dames) is, without a doubt, in the winning half of my top 10 songs of all time list…a.k.a. my top 5 songs of all time. To cover this song is… Continue Reading →
