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.”

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.

Hot Chip

I’ll take new music from Hot Chip in any way I can get it. They have recorded a cover of William Onyeabor’s “Atomic Bomb” for a compilation of bands covering/remixing William Onyeabor tracks called WHAT?!: William Onyeabor Remixed. The compilation is a Record Store Day exclusive that David Byrne’s label Luaka Bop is releasing.

The cover is right in Hot Chip’s wheelhouse. Enjoy it below.

The War On Drugs

I was bummed to have missed out on The War On Drugs 3 shows in New York City last week, but that is life. It didn’t help that I just found out that they have been doing a cover of John Lennon’s “Mind Games.”

The always amazing NYC Taper was there at their Bowery Ballroom show on March 20 and got an amazing recording of their performance of the track. Check out their cover below. Read the rest of this entry »

Flaming Lipns Miley Cyrus

Earlier this month Miley Cyrus threw us a curveball with her cover of Arctic Monkeys’ “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”. Now she’s done it again with The Flaming Lips. On Saturday night she performed a cover of their song “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots” live at her show in L.A. at Staples Center. Only this time, she did with a little help from The Flaming Lips themselves.

She was joined by The Flaming Lips’ very own Wayne Coyne & Steven Drozd to perform the track. You know what? Miley’s voice actually fits the song well.

The collaboration isn’t as random as you think. Cyrus apparently had tweeted many times about how much she adored the band, and apparently Coyne tweeted her back as well. It was a special night for many reasons, but it was actually the 30th anniversary of The Lips’ first show.

They actually ended up performing the cover twice. Here’s a video of the first go-around posted below.
