This year’s Starbucks sponsored Valentine’s Day collection, Sweethearts 2014 is stacked with musicians worth getting excited over - from Vampire Weekend to Phosphorescent to Fiona Apple and beyond - all covering love songs originally by other artists. Here is Ben Harper's fragile, heartbreaking take on Mazzy Star's classic, “Fade Into You”.
beta love ra ra riot // jenny (eqavox remix) studio killers // 8bit love breakbot // my circuitboard city the wombats // daft punk is playing at my house (soulwax shibuya mix) lcd soundsystem // we exist (night drive edit) arcade fire // electric twist a fine frenzy // settle down (feature cuts remix) kimbra // circuit lover she // flash delirium mgmt
I’m starting a review of all the great music I found and/or was obsessed with this year and Grimes is pretty high on that list. Being one of the artists I was really into while recovering makes her a little more dear to me (along with Bat for Lashes) than some of the other stuff I listened to this year. She is amazing and (as much as she hates being called this) adorable and provocative and smart and I just can’t with this lady.
I’ll post the actual songs too but this is a fun early 60’s-rock style cover of her song Oblivion.
