Swedish trio Ember Island’s Creep is such a beautiful Radiohead cover that it’s inspired some new renderings of the track itself, the latest of which comes by way of German producers GAMPER & DADONI. The pair literally take my breath away with their gorgeous deep house single, a purely transcendental listen that lives up to the lyrics “you’re just like an angel”. Ember Island’s soothing vocals and the tender guitars and gentle beats on the song complement each other to the utmost. Download this blissed out gem for free, here.

Over the summer, Swedish trio Ember Island gave us a serenely meditative cover of Radiohead standard Creep, imbuing the song’s “float like a feather” lyric an immeasurably palpable quality. Boulder based production pro Thoreau gives that beautiful version of Creep a deeply introspective remix, installing a brilliant new twist on future bass in the process. Though Thoreau’s Creep is built on a punchy bass line and infused with staccato beats, this calculated meander, a dramatically contemplative edit, takes us on a somber ride that leaves us waxing philosophical. As we muse over the esoteric, it dawns on us. Perhaps this is why Thoreau gave himself the name that he has. He enlightens us with his transcendental music, overwhelming us with dark beauty while driving deep into our psyche. Download the remix from Toneden.

We’ve no doubt grown accustomed to Ember Island’s adept ability to deliver amazing covers of classic songs and massive hits, with their latest jaw dropping track a breathtaking and cinematic re-imagination of Radiohead standard Creep. As always, Ember Island’s atmospheric re-makes lead to immense remixes, with Southern California’s Gill Chang offering up the first transformation of the transcendental cover. The gingerly clattering future bass and softly foaming chill trap remix was premiered by NEST HQ, and it’s out of this world. It shoots across the celestial sky, a sonic beauty too divine with feels too boundless to be of this earth. Download the remix for free, here.

We can always count on Swedish trio Ember Island to give us incredibly creative and beautiful cover remakes of classic songs and massive hits. Many of those gems have been remixed by buzzing producers, too. Take a deep breath before you step into the magical world of Ember Island’s Creep. That’s right, they’ve given the Radiohead standard the Ember Island touch. The atmospheric, cinematic indietronic re-imagination is breathtaking. Its beauty comes complemented with a magnificent video accompaniment.

Lula Blioux is an unsigned singer songwriter from London, and she sends shivers through me with the pure immaculate beauty of her soulful voice on what seems to be her very first single, We Don’t Talk. The soulful acoustic pop song feels like it’s about to break under the weight of aching emotion. It’s brittle and refined, anguished and tender. The only other song that appears on Lula Blioux’s Soundcloud account is an old cover of Radiohead’s Creep, but it’s such a stunning rendition that it’s a must listen. Find it below.

Sia’s everywhere lately, having finally attained the massive level of success she’s deserved for decades that span from her start as a member of Zero 7, through her brilliant solo work, on to her magnificent song crafting for other artists, and finally back to her powerful projects as herself today. I wonder how many of you remember her guest vocals on New York dark electronic duo CREEP’s Dim The Lights a few years back. For a bit of a refresher, Brooklyn’s Nick Catchdubs’ new remix of Dim The Lights takes us back into the enchantment of the song, but in a lighter, more delicate fashion. This is a future bass remix of weightless ethereal beauty, a labyrinth journey of sparkling fantasy.

Thanks to a fantastic remix by CREEP, I’ve discovered Brooklyn synthpop trio Papertwin, who’ve been crafting music in the scene for a few years now. They recently released an EP, Vox Humana, and on it is this electric delight, Akaline. The pulsing synths and post-punky vocals remind me of The Cure or New Order, but darker and more electric, a la CHVRCHES or Trust, with a strong dose of Kate Bush, particularly near the end of the tune (Running Up That Hill, anyone?). For those craving a darker twist on the track, we can always rely on CREEP to imbue the tune with a little more of an ominous, heady quality. Check out the rest of Papertwin’s new EP, here.

Whoa, I’m used to a really dark, witchy sounding CREEP, but the New York duo has surprised me with this gorgeous new track Dim The Lights which features, of all people, Sia! CREEP’s debut album Echoes comes out on November 12. The release features many other awesome artists, including Romy Madley Croft of The xx. I’m not sure how I missed this news prior to today, but I sure am glad I came upon it! Dim The Lights is a soaring, emotional beauty. While the production isn’t as ominous and heavy as CREEP’s other work, it’s still very spacious and atmospheric. It has an enchanting, storybook romance quality.
