To be honest, I noticed that this track was floating around over the weekend while I was running around 10 plus hours a day tiring myself out at Outside Lands Music Festival, and it was the song I was most greatly looking forward to checking out once I found a moment to treat my ears to the tune. Worlds collide as CHVRCHES’ Bury It, featuring Paramore’s Haley Williams, gets the Keys N Krates treatment on a magnificent remix. The Toronto trap and electronic outfit turns the Scottish electropop band’s single into a grandly atmospheric electronic opus. Gone are the filthy drops and whomping bass we’re usually accustomed to from one of my favorite trap projects. Keys N Krates gives us a wide expanse of surprisingly slick and cinematic trap, and it’s a transcendental experience.

CHVRCHES fans and Paramore fans unite in collective ecstasy today as the Scottish electropop darlings reveal a new rendition of their song Bury It, which features Paramore’s Hayley Williams on guest vocals. The original comes from their superb album Every Open Eye. Hayley joined CHVRCHES on stage for the song when they were on tour last year. Apparently, it was received so well that they’ve recorded a studio version of the cooperation. Though it’s not a huge switch up from the album track, which is perfect as it is and so signature pulsating CHVRCHES marvelous, it’s certainly added icing on the cake to enjoy a version with Lauren and Hayley singing side by side. 

Paramore covered Alt-J live!

April 12, 2013

As I’m sure you all have gathered, I’m a huge Alt-J fan, so it’s pretty cool to come upon this recent footage of Paramore doing an acoustic cover of Alt-J song Mathilda. Haley Williams does a pretty good job, but NOTHING compares to the original. I just saw Alt-J for the second time in my life a couple nights ago and they blew me away again. I’m pretty sure now that Alt-J’s debut album An Awesome Wave is my top album of 2012. I just love it too much.

The new Paramore

January 23, 2013

This one’s bouncing around the machine like mad today. Paramore previewed a track off their coming self-titled fourth studio album which comes out in April. The new track is titled Now, and it’s undeniably catchy. There’s no doubt that it’ll be a hit and will be stuck in all our heads. It sounds like they seem to be going for something more grungy and gritty again. I welcome that with open arms. I wouldn’t say Now is their best song ever, but as someone who was a fan of Paramore from very early on, I (and this is my opinion) feel that Hayley and the band lost too much of that punky grungy style post-participation on the Twilight soundtrack. I enjoyed them the most when Hayley was in her skater get up jumping around with mad punk energy. The early albums were great and did some awesome, new things for grrl rockers. Brand New Eyes (the third album), for me, was a decent album, but not great. There was also a lot of drama and falling out going on within the band after the Twilight popularity explosion. I’m not sure how much effect it all had on their music, but I’m sure it does something. Again, not that they were ever bad, but I hope to hear more of a return to form in the rest of the new album. Either that, or a completely new direction. After all, Hayley Williams did state that Alt-J is a HUGE influence on their new album. Alt-J influencing anything has got to be a good thing.

New Paramore

Here’s Paramore’s new song Hello Cold World. Hayley’s sounding good on this track. Though also softer and more ballad-y than I would’ve preferred, it seems a little bit higher quality than some of their previous stuff ever since the whole Twilight thing and the rampant drama and loss of bandmates. After two listens, I’m starting to dig it, and it makes me curious how the rest of the tracks off the new album will be. The internetz police are clamping down hard on shares, so if this video isn’t up by the time you click it and I haven’t had a chance to switch out to a working one, you were too slow! 😉
