COVER OF THE DAY: Jessie J Covers The Naked & Famous

For those of you who don’t know Jessie J (I didn’t but I’ve been lagging in my music lately) she is a british pop singer who I think is comparable to Lily Allen or Natasha Bedingfield. So she stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform some of her songs as well as this cover of The Naked & Famous’s “Young Blood” and cover she did. I like this cover better than her songs! Listen below and if you want to find out more on Jessie J just go to her Myspace Page here.

Cover of the Day: Yeasayer Cover Seal’s “Crazy”

I’m really digging this cover Yeasayer performed on Triple J’s “Like A Version” (which is the Australian equivelant of  UK’s BBC 1 Radio) of Seal’s “Crazy”. Who doesn’t love this song…or any Seal song! Come on you know whenever “Kiss by a Rose” comes on you jam out to it in your car and think of the worst Batman movie ever made. I like how Yeasayer took this song and made it so unique without overdoing it, plus there is a tamborine which takes it to a next level…all we need is a kazoo. Listen below (Thanks SKOA)!

RIP White Stripes 2/2/2011

Guess I will never fulfill my dreams of finally seeing the White Stripes in concert. Jack and Meg have announced they will no longer be making any music together, essentially they want to go out with a bang. Now excuse me while I go cry myself to sleep in the corner to the tune of “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.”

Lineup of the Day: Coachella

I’m just going to leave this here and let you think about this. As you can see (if you enlarge the image) the headliners are Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and Kanye West. Plus the fact that there are a million other really great bands. Let this sink in for a few minutes…

WATCH: Vampire Weekend vs. The Black Keys in a “Sell-Out Off”

Well played Colbert…well played. The Black Keys and Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra stopped by the Colbert Report to help Stephen decide on “Best Alternative Album” for the Grammys. The game is the “Sell-Out Off” and shall be determined by who whores out their music the most. It’s actually funny to see all the commercials both bands’ songs have been in…they gotta make their money somewhere people! I would try and stay neutral on the two bands but everyone knows I absolutely love Vampire Weekend. So much that while drunk at the bar the past weekend some dude asked me what the best album of 2010 was and I answered Contra. I don’t necessarily agree with my drunken self on that but it was good. Anyway, if you want to check out the funny clip  go to Colbert Report on Comedy Central!

 

LISTEN: Kanye West & Jay-Z – “H.A.M.”

The first track off the highly anticipated Kanye/Jay-Z collab album Watch The Throne has officially dropped this morning. Kanye’s current album was named Top Album of 2010 on basically every list out there and it seems to be flowing over to this one. I don’t think you could possibly go wrong with this collaboration album. at.all. Listen to “H.A.M.” (hard as a motherfucker) below!

UPDATE: Well the youtube videos keep on being removed so if you want to check out the song follow this link:
