THROWBACK THURSDAY: “Enjoy the Silence”

This week’s Thowback Thursday cover is “Enjoy the Silence” Echotape. We’d feature this band every TBT with their cover songs if we didn’t think it might be slight overkill and seem like favoritism, but we like their covers. They’re fun and the band is good.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: “In the Air Tonight”

Holly’s voice takes this song to another place and time. She does such a brilliant cover of this song by Phil Collins that I truly don’t have the words to express how good it is so I’ll let her voice and this cover speak for itself. If you stumble upon the album LIVE STUFF, you’ll be able to grab this for yourself and I recommend this live album. It’s really good and captures the power of Holly’s voice!

COVER SONG: “Ace of Spades”

While researching bands that begin with “E”, we stumbled onto London’s Echotape and HOLY MOLY BATMAN! Am I digging this band. They’ll be our Music Brought to You by the Letter E later in the week, but we couldn’t pass sharing their cover of Motörhead classic “Ace of Spades”. We’ll feature a few other covers by the band through out the rest of the week/month as well. They do brilliant covers of Bruce Springsteen, Travis, David Bowie and more! Without further ado, here’s “Ace of Spades” Echotape: Facebook | Twitter | Website Continue reading COVER SONG: “Ace of Spades”

COVER: “Wrecking Ball”

I am a big fan of cover songs, especially great cover songs that can strip away the perceived notion or idea of a song and expose the real beauty of a song. I think Ásgeir does that brilliantly with his cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”. I have always said that lyrically “Wrecking Ball” was a solid song, but ruined by the vision of the pop tart swinging around on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer. Her abrasiveness ruined the delicateness of the song and Ásgeir redeems the song beautifully. Ásgeir: Facebook | Twitter | Website Continue reading COVER: “Wrecking Ball”
