London Grammar – Nightcall (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on November 30th, 2013 by Hyphen

One of my favorite new groups on the scene is London Grammar and here’s they’ve just released this video of their Kavinsky cover for “Nightcall.”  Great stuff, though if we’re talking LG covers, I have to mention their epic take on Chris Isaak too:

Ellie’s video for her cover of Alt-J’s “Tessellate” is great.  Super sexy record, plus black and white stylish shots of Paris?  Yep!

Yuna – Thinkin’ Bout You (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos, Videos on July 13th, 2012 by Hyphen

While I don’t think anyone is capable of improving on Frank Ocean’s flawless original, I was happy to see Yuna cover “Thinkin’ Bout You.”  She came with a unique twist on it and it turned out dope.  There’s a rumor that a certain Seattle based radio show might be linking up with Yuna in a few days for an interview and exclusive acoustic performance…

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Victory Lap (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 14th, 2012 by Hyphen

Following up on his XXL Freshmen cover, Mack releases his new video with Ryan Lewis for “Victory Lap,” showing that his rise to stardom has been in the works far longer than just the past year.  Obviously everyone in Seattle knows this firsthand, but this video should help tell that story to the rest of Mack’s rapidly growing fan base.  So proud of these two guys for absolutely killing it…for years!

Florence + the Machine – Take Care (cover) (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on December 3rd, 2011 by Hyphen

I’ve been meaning to post this up since last week, but I’ve been caught up in the post-Thanksgiving madness.  Florence kills this version of Drake and Rihanna’s soon to be smash in this live performance for BBC Radio 1.  As I’ve mentioned on Twitter, I can’t tell whether I live it and then Drake puts it in to song, or he writes about it and then it happens to me.  Either way, I’m pretty sure he owes me royalties on my life right now.

Yuna – Come As You Are (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 17th, 2011 by Hyphen

This is my favorite song out right now, shout to Rob Stone and the Cornerstone homies for putting me up on this. I may or may not have a crush on Yuna too.  Here’s the original, beyond classic unplugged version from Nirvana, just for good old times sake:

Portland Cello Project covers Kanye’s “All Of The Lights”

Posted in Live Performances, Videos on January 29th, 2011 by Hyphen

On Graduation, Kanye’s goal was to create stadium anthems (remember the line, “stadium status”?) and it seems with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, he’s crossed over to the orchestral world.  Opera house status doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, but the music sure sounds perfect.
