German electro producer Zedd shows off some serious piano skillage in the above piano version of his “Spectrum” single. Dude looks mad young and he’s already a multiple time #1 spot guy at Beatport and a Lady Gaga tour mate, too?! Get em, boo.

Hear the original version for “Spectrum” below – a quite interesting contrast.

New Release: Meiko – ‘The Bright Side’

 

One of the fortunate handful of artists to be discovered via MySpace, Georgian folk pop singer Meiko recently released her make-you-feel-all-gooey-inside sophomore album The Bright Side. And yes, her cooing vocal style is definitely reminding us heavy of one of our other favorite gals, Ellie Goulding.

While you may first think Ellie, don’t get it twisted – the sweet toned lass cites a slew of influences that include Patty Griffin, Sade, The Cranberries, Fiona Apple, Indigo Girls, Nina Simone, and Portishead, for starters.

For those unfamiliar, get a taste of Meiko’s sound via the below video for the album’s leading track “Leave The Lights On.” Quite forward lyricism from the sweet young lady – watch out for the nice ones!

A little cross between Adele and Lana Del Rey, perhaps? And still, vocal sensation Paloma Faith has indubitably got mounds of drama in a fashion all her own.

Blending pop, country, soul, and little throwback rock, this acoustic video for “Agony” showcases the tickling passion of this young lady. Her album, Fall To Grace, was recently released in the UK – so you all can be sure that there will be plenty more trickling in for us to share.
