London Grammar Covers “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak

London Grammar covered “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak.

London Grammar keeps the clean open guitar riff but replaces Chris Isaak’s rockabilly vocals with her Marina and the Diamonds style voice. Her cover keeps the song in a very clean and trip-hop-influenced sound.

It’s really hard to not like any cover of “Wicked Game” though. Giant Drag’s overdrive-filled cover has been a favorite of mine for years.

[COVER:] “The Promse” by When in Rome – Covered by Late Night Alumni

I once told my mom that I love “The Promise” by When in Rome. She then told me that she always hated that song because it’s so corny and also that it was my dad’s “song” with his ex-girlfriend before he met my mom in the 80s.

So that adds to why I really like the Late Night Alumni cover of “The Promise” – it’s a cover that takes a cheesily romantic 80s new wave ballad and breathes new house beats into it along with sultry female vocals.

[NEW]: “Waterfalls” by Mr. Little Jeans

This afternoon, Mr. Little Jeans released her cover of Paul McCartney’s “Waterfalls,” continuing the oceans theme begun with last month’s “Oh Sailor.”

Adding to Mr. Little Jeans’s┬álist of ethereal, dreampop reduxes of songs, she continues to stand out amongst all the other dream poppers.

Chromatics Cover Joy Division / New Order’s “Ceremony”

Chromatics are probably best known for their sultry electropop cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”

Now they’ve taken their electro-sensuality to remake Joy Division‘s last / New Order‘s first single “Ceremony.”

P.S. Both Chromatics tracks are definitely songs to bone to.
