Scott Bradlee and Cristina Gatti came together to totally blow us away with a 1940’s swing cover of Beyonce’s "Drunk in Love". This cover is literally a combo of everything that rules: mega-babe musicians, Beyoncé, and lovely lilting tunes. Gatti’s alto voice is perfectly accentuated by big band jams and, man oh man, does it almost give Bey a run for her money. Can you grain it on that wood, swerve on it and serve all this while doing the ... Read More

I know we all live in a perpetual state of watching/talking about/admiring Beyoncé, Beyoncé, and the cult of Beyoncé, but what's St. Bey up to herself? Turns out she's watching covers of her own songs, and she took to Facebook to post a pretty fantastic one by sister duo Chloe and Halle.
Chloe and Halle cover "Pretty Hurts" from Ms. B's new album, and augment it with gorgeous harmonies and simple piano. It's a very grown-up song for sisters ... Read More

Rolling Stone has Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan, and Alec Baldwin on the cover of it's January edition. The colorful set up includes Tracy Morgan and Alec Baldwin both costumed as Superman and Superboy respectfully, and Tina Fey as Lois Lane. (Lets not even start on the derogatory choice of portraying Tracy Morgan as Superboy.) Alec Baldwin is supporting her as they fly through the air arm in arm. This set up seems strange especially when the cover piece is titled, ... Read More

With Halloween right around the corner, the Misfits will soon be in heavy rotation on my turntable. Not that they aren’t usually on my playlist; I’m a die-hard Danzig fan, I’ve rocked a devilock, and my now-boyfriend’s inclusion of Pajo’s stripped-down version of “Hybrid Moments” at the end of a mixtape is what won him a third date. I am also a fan of cute girls, and a downright sucker for a lady with a ukulele ... Read More
