“Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” by Amercia
Originally by Sophie B. Hawkins
AMERCIA are Emelie Norenberg and Gustaf Törling, and behind the squall, you’ll find the Sophie B Hawkins classic “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover”. The vocals are distant, ghostly, but there’s still urgency. “Unique” gets thrown around a lot, but I think they’re on to something here…
Remember the 90s? Cause this cover is SEX.
I Want You (Bob Dylan) - The Tallest Man On Earth
Last night as a break from production work I’ve been doing, I decided to cover my good friend Adam “Kindness” Bainbridge’s song “Cyan”. I used drum elements from “Everything Is Embarassing”, then I invited my friend Tracy Antonopoulos (From the band Cable) round to come and sing some backing vocals.
Here’s the end product, enjoy!
Oh. Oh my.
oh god this is so dark and sexy

Look At Miss Ohio / Blind Pilot (cover of Gillian Welch)
In the face of all the anti-woman sentiment in America (especially from Ohio) right now, this song reminds me of how pressured first-world women still are to make certain choices and how those “choices” must be carried out on a timeline determined by others - even and often other women, to be certain.
Had your arm around her shoulder, a regimental soldier
An’ mama starts pushing that wedding gown
Yeah you wanna do right but not right now
Given the serious and horrific grievances by those less fortunate all over the world, these issues may seem trite at first glance, but there is no way to help anyone else anywhere unless we fix what is broken in our own home first.
In all the ways.
And there’s a longlong list.

“The Morning” by Saskatchewan
Originally by The Weeknd
A little more than a week ago a friend of mine suggested that we do a cover of The Weeknd. The idea was definitely a stretch for me but I figured it would be an interesting challenge. The end result of our version of The Weeknd’s “The Morning” is like a forensics TV show soundtrack mets sleezy lounge jazz mets saskatchewan. I hope you enjoy.
Better slow down
she’ll feel it in the morning
