I love me a good cover! I recently came across a few nice renditions of what happen to be my favourite songs. And cause tumblr will only let me post one video at a time and cause good things come in threes, enjoy the following posts:
Much like 99% of the world’s population I spent a lot of time with Frank . Ocean’s Channel Orange over the last year. Lost needs no introduction. Vaundeville Smash, on the other hand, might. But I don’t know much about them. I think they’re Australian though…? Frank & AUS coming together in such harmony! Now get with the Splendour sideshows.
Tame Impala covering one of my favourite Outkast songs (or is technically only credited to Andre 3000 thanks to that 2003 split album?)
Either way it’s solid and it’s called PROTOTYPE.enoy.
I vowed never to post pictures of food here, but I just had THE saddest meal of my life. My heart breaks for the burnt, leathery crape posing as a sausage and the ocean flavoured tofu disguised as ‘grilled barramundi’. The only good thing the 3 of us could come up for the 3 meals was that the steamed zucchini was edible and there was a generous serving of gravox.
I don’t know how long it’ll take me to forgive food. #nofilter, there’s no saving this one. (at the new ivanhoe hotel)
To celebrate the listening party of The Strokes new album - Comedown Machine - happening over at Pitchfork, and Google’s new GIF search function, here’s one of Julian Casablancas pretty much summing up Comedown Machine for me (powered by Google)
Interesting article about Justin Timberlake selling himself (and as a result, his latest album) as a luxury brand. It brings some insight into the current state of music economy and making a dollar when the cd sales don’t.
You’ve come a long way, baby.
Lost photo circa Sep 2012 (aka good times)
Here’s one he did with Brian Eno - Digital Lion
I couldn’t have dreamed of a better pairing. Bliss.
Nabil x James Blake. Can’t wait.

Very nsfw but so very good.
The just-dropped video clip for Late Night has got to be one of the best things about the most recent Foals album Holy Fire. Though a little sub par to their previous two releases, Holy Fire isn’t really a bad album. In the slightest. it’s just that this
clip visual masterpiece, directed by Nabil Elderkin, takes the song to a new level. It’s a feast for the eyes and ears and works so well I’m worried about the next guy directing a Foals clip.
I expected no less from the man responsible for one of the finest video clips this side of the Tweenies (aka 2010 +) [CLICKKKKKKKK]
Negroni or dinner? The reoccurring question in my life. Last night, negroni won. $18 well spent
"is wine sexier than hard liquor? I don’t think it is – there’s nothing sexier than sitting directly across the table from your number one gal with a bottle of whiskey and just getting stuck into it – real street level, heart in the gutter stuff – let it bleed baby, let’s sleep on the kitchen floor like fools."

The Knife // Full of Fire
Without any exaggeration, this has to be one of the most exciting pieces of music I’ve heard in the last few years.
A 10 minute song can feel like a chore and I’ll often make it a highlights reel of of it, chopping it up and skipping 2-3 mins at a time. But not this. About 5 seconds in, you’re completely hooked. And when it’s over you want to press the reply button.
I hope I never get sick of this. Shaking The Habitual, come at me.
THE JOY OF YAHOO ANSWERS!!
There are a few things in life I’ve come across that are as perfect as The Gum(/Spartacus) episode of Seinfeld. Google didn’t give me much about the backstory behind it, assuming there was one, but it give me a couple of great Yahoo Answers
