Honestly, I have no idea what’s going on with covers this week, but I’ve listened to a helluva lot of them through the course of the day, and they’ve all been immense. Norwegian producer Todd Terje offered up a cover of classic Robert Palmer song Johnny and Mary, and it features Bryan Ferry. It’s a subtle, subdued, beautiful cover with ample amounts of introspective moodiness to dwell upon. Yet, there’s an atmospheric lightness to it that’s very fresh. One of my favorite covers of Johnny and Mary happens to be Placebo’s, and this is very much the opposite of that.

My oh my, that Alex Kapranos has been keeping himself pretty busy lately. How many of you knew that Franz Ferdinand released a couple new tunes under the name The North Sea titled Evil Eye and Stand On The Horizon? The North Sea is his collaboration with Norwegian electronic producer Todd Terje. Evil Eye is as evilly good as it sounds. Stand on The Horizon is a funk infused, great listen too. Stream the Todd Terje Extended edits above.

While I’m at it, I’ll also share UK drum and bass act Rudimental’s 26 minute long Live Loung DJ Set they did for BBC Radio 1 on February 24th. They’ve uploaded it onto soundcloud for us all to enjoy. These guys are tearing up the scene with their awesome tracks. I realized the other day why they’re so awesome and why I’m drawn so much to their sound. They combine drum and bass with some kickass horns on their songs. Geezus. Too good. Anyway, those on this side of the pond, they’re invading shortly. I’ve got my tix. In the meantime, here’s their mix they threw together for Annie Mac on BBC Radio. And yes, it does include the omnipresent Harlem Shake, for better or for worse. 

Tracklist:

-Kidnap Kid – Animaux
-Rudimental – Hell Could Freeze (feat Angel Haze)
-Klangkarussell – Sonnetanz
-Todd Terje – Inspector Norse
-Rudimental – Feel The Love
-Baauer – Harlem Shake
-Marvin Gaye – Lets Get It On
-Damian Marley – Welcome To Jamrock
-Rudimental – Waiting All Night
