D’Angelo “I’m Glad You’re Mine (Al Green Cover)”

Because living life continues to be pleasant, holding one’s breath over that looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong-awaited D’Angelo studio album quickly got shucked over to the “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” personal folder once it became apparent that we would all be walking zombies busting out our best “Thriller” moves by the time this now mythical album saw […]

CHVRCHES “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay (Whitney Houston Cover)”

Their heretofore catalog highlighted by a few attention-grabbing remixes for names like MS MR and St. Lucia, a fantastic cover of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U” and a few Internet-beloved ditties making the most out of ’80’s-indebted keyboard dazzle and brain-invading choruses brought to life by Lauren Mayberry’s distinctive faerie-doll coos, Glasgow, Scotland-birthed synth-pop […]

Kings of Leon “Supersoaker”

Even though Kings of Leon experienced their greatest commercial success with pop-polished arena-sized rockers like “Sex On Fire” and “Use Somebody”, in our hearts, the band’s best work arrived a couple albums earlier with the excellent blending of cool indie rock spunk and Southern rock shagginess that framed their 2004 effort Aha Shake Heartbreak. After […]
