Watch Real Estate’s La Blogothèque Session

By Will Oliver, July 9th 2014

Real Estate

A few weeks back La Blogothèque posted the session they did with Real Estate in Paris. It all went down in a living room, where the band (just Martin, Matt and Alex) did an acoustic set that featured their usual material, plus a few treats. They played unreleased track “White Light” as well as a fun cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”

It’s a great session. Enjoy it below.

Dan Boeckner

Last week former Wolf Parade member Dan Boeckner’s new band (in addition to Divine Fits and Handsome Furs) Operators (read more about them here) played a show during Canadian Music Week 2014.

During the show the band brought out Japandroids to join them as Dan led them all through Wolf Parades “This Heart’s On Fire.” This is probably the cloest thing we will get to hearing anything from Wolf Parade for now, so it’s cool to see, especially considering Japandroids are involved as well.

Watch the performance below.

Arctic Monkeys

Last week Arctic Monkeys stopped by Australian radio station Triple J and participated in the station’s famed Like A Version segment, where bands cover a song of their choice. Arctic Monkeys (Alex & Matt) were up and took on Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.”

It’s an acoustic cover, tackled solely by Turner. Hearing him play it with his British accent gives the song a really pretty feel. I may be biased, but I think he really did the song justice, and then some. The first part of the video clip also features a fun bit.

They also performed “Do I Wanna Know”, where Helders adds his vocals as well as some tambourine. Helder also admits his favorite cover of “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” is Miley Cyrus’.

Find both performances posted below.

James Chance and the True Groove All Stars

James Chance has recently been signed to True Groove Records, and to celebrate he’s released a special James Brown cover. He got together with The True Groove All-Stars and recorded a cover of Brown’s “I Don’t Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing.”

It’s a soulful cover, with plenty of the jazzy aspects required.

Janelle Monae – Heroes (David Bowie Cover)

Janelle Monae Heroes

As a a part of Pepsi’s “Beats of the Beautiful Game” ad campaign, Janelle Monáe has covered David Bowie’s legendary track “Heroes.”

She gives it a more modern spin that is very much hers. I’m admit that I’m a bit mixed on it, but I respect the vision that she went in with on it.

Check out Janelle Monáe’s version below, followed by Bowie’s.

Yumi Zouma - It Feels Good To Be Around You

Air France may have called it quits but they can still lend some help when other bands are covering their songs.

It’s actually been two years since they announced they were breaking up, so New Zealand’s Yumi Zouma recruited the duo to help out with the cover of their song “It Feels Good To Be Around You.”

It’s as close as you’re going to get to hearing new Air France, so take it all in guys. Their cover/collab is posted below.
