It’s very rare form for us to share a studio performance video as a feature here on IHM, but I’m far too enamored with gifted Norwegian musician Aurora and her bewitching cover of legendary trip hop band Massive Attack’s classic tune, Teardrop. Her glacial enchanting aesthetic and her lissome ethereal voice are perfect fits for the well loved song. Though there are plenty of other Teardrop covers I love (ie. José González’s, here), this one quickly rises to the top. Aurora performed the cover for triple j’s Like A Version sessions. Oh, how I’d love to hear this in person.

Little Dragon cover Kelis and Andre 3000’s Millionaire

August 22, 2014

Let’s start the afternoon off with a cover, shall we? Little Dragon, who’s due to play a sold out show at the cavernous Fox Theatre in Oakland tonight, turned in a fantabulous cover of Kelis’ Millionaire, which originally features Andre 3000. The Swedish electropop band’s neo-soul electropop style fits the tune well, and I found myself captivated to the utmost by the always incredible Yukimi Nagano and her smooth voice. This is also the first time I’ve heard Yukimi rap, which is pretty dang cool. This makes me regret not making it out to Little Dragon’s show tonight, but I’m planning to hit them up the next time they return this Fall. After all, I got to see them at Mezzanine a couple years ago, albeit while incredibly hungover because it was the day after my birthday.

First Aid Kit cover Jack White’s Love Interruption

August 2, 2014

I try not to make it a habit to feature video clips of covers on IHM, but once in awhile, I encounter something that’s too spectacular not to be shared. Quite often, the clips are from Australia’s Triple J radio, since they have a tradition of having bands do covers live on air when they visit their studios. Today, we get to watch Swedish folk sisters First Aid Kit do a transcendental cover of Jack White’s Love Interruption. It’s perfect.

OFFICIAL VID: The Paper Kites – Young

October 17, 2013

Since I first posted about The Paper Kites this summer, I’ve noticed their name mentioned quite frequently. The Australian folk band released their debut album States recently. Their latest creative music video for album track Young was even mentioned on The Huffington Post! The video features thousands of people wording the lyrics to the torpid, dreamy song. The Paper Kites also visited Australia’s Triple J radio and did an awesome cover of Disclosure’s Help Me Lose My Mind, which originally featured the amazing London Grammar. Watch the video for that below, too. I found their cover very Bombay Bicycle Club-ish.

OK, I gotta say, this is pretty cool. Psych rockers Tame Impala visited the Triple J Radio studios in their native Australia and performed this groovy cover of OutKast’s Prototype!

Bon Iver covering Anais Mitchell

Justin Vernon can sing anything and make it touchingly beautiful. Here’s Bon Iver’s cover of Anais Mitchell’s Coming Down. Loving the sax solo on this.
