Janet staying classic on her new track “No Sleep”. Keeping it simple with the chill vibes.
Ever since I gave Jamie XX‘s debut solo album In Colour a whirl I’ve been obsessed with 2 tracks, “Loud Places” and “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” (It’s all really good actually). So I was pretty keen to check out this live performance of “Loud Places” on the TV show Le Grand Journal. With help from Romy (The xx) and a backing choir, Jamie XX puts on a pretty special performance of an already really beautiful track.
The A.V Club recently invited a band called the Screaming Females to come in and perform a song as a part of their Undercover Series. The track the band covered was Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. I definitely wasn’t expecting that interpretation and I gotta say I kinda dig it. That vocal delivery is something else.
LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy has a new project scoring the soundtrack for the film ‘While We’re Young’, written and directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Ben Stiller & Naomi Watts. ‘We Used to Dance’ is one of the compositions that Murphy has created for the film. It features soothing synths and a repetitive build that feels gorgeously cinematic. A gem of a track.
Murphy also contributed a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Golden Years’ and a new song ‘Only The Stars Above Welcome Me Home’, which you can also listen to above.
If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for the film check it out below:
