Ever since we came across Anemone nearly a full year ago, Los Angeles indie duo slenderbodies has been one of our favorite bands to watch. We even made sure to catch them when they made their trip out to San Francisco a few months ago, and we’re immensely elated to see their buzz picking up exponentially ahead of their SXSW debut. slenderbodies’ slinky strutting, hazy stirring combination of indietronica and psych pop immediately reeled in this Glass Animals and Alt-J loving heart, and I was thrilled when the group covered MGMT classic Electric Feel live. I know I wasn’t the only one, considering the way the sold out crowd responded with endless joy. Now, we all get to groove out to the smoky gliding, plucky shuffling jam, thanks to an official recording of said cover. If you managed to miss out on slenderbodies’ acclaimed EP, Fabulist, you need to get on it, now. Stream an extended version of Fabulist, here.

MGMT’s Electric Feel will probably go down for all eternity as an indie classic. It’s one of those songs I’ll never tire of no matter how many times I’ve heard it’s familiar hooks.  This week, we get a very different interpretation of that song via Berlin’s Nick Talos and satiny Oakland crooner CRW. These “electric feels” are gooey seductive and flushed swooning. Nick Talos turns Electric Feel into a sexy house jam, complete with sizzling brass and a funky plush groove. Of course, it wouldn’t be as complete of a fevered euphoria without CRW’s molten serenade. Grab Nick Talos and CRW’s Electric Feel, here

As you can probably tell, I go through so much music every day that at times, when I go through a string of not as spectacular music, I wonder if I’m becoming numb to it. Then something special comes along and renews my faith, invigorates my ears, and drives me to heights of glad elation. That’s exactly what happened earlier today when I stumbled upon an incredible chill electronic cover mashup that joins together two beloved songs, MGMT’s classic hit Electric Feel and Glass Animals more recent slinky anthem Gooey. Californian producer Olmos teams up with soothing vocalist Jovani Occomy on the mashup cover, a lusciously relaxing indie dance and chill house work of mosaic magic.

Australian electronic trio Crooked Colours has me blown away and flying on cloud nine with their sensational cover of MGMT classic Electric Feel. Everyone loved the original, though it may have been way overplayed for awhile. Crooked Colours gives it a brilliant update with a magnificent electronic update that bubbles, wobbles, and bursts with sweet electronic texture. This is as hypnotic and wicked of a tune as I’ve heard all week. It’s a darker, more mysterious approach on the original, which are qualities I tend to love. Crooked COlours’ cover is up for free download on Soundcloud.
