The ever talented Melo-X can probably make music in his sleep. The most recent product of “playing around in the studio” is a cover of the popular “Video Games” by Lana Del Rey. Pretty fancy indeed.

If this guy’s voice were a person, we would hold its hand and potentially never let go.

On the heels of his Home Again EP, Michael Kiwanuka just released a video of a live session at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios. The song? A cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” complete with some super sick sitar action. Man, is this guy dreamy. Killing it.

The magnificent Alice Smith seems to be back at it. After hearing rumors of comebacks for a minute, we’ve been holding on to hope for a while now. Everyone can now breathe easy with this new cover of Cee-Lo’s “Fool For You.” Damn, this little lady got some pipes, man.

Coco of Quadron convenes with her bandmates to do a beautiful rendition of Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.” Pretty incredible for an impromptu performance that’s basically a cappella. Gotta love the charming courtyard in Vienna and the elegant Coco is doing nothing less than killing it in that fit.

Been a minute since we’ve written about our boy James Blake. Last time was news that he’d released his Enough Thunder EP. Since then, he’s released a video for his Joni Mitchell cover of “A Case of You” off the aformentioned EP and a new 3-track EP called Love What Happened Here, which you can grab at the end of this post.

Accompanied by Blake’s beautiful sing-song, the video starts off warm and cozy, placing you inside the characters’ home as would a good book or film. And even as the story descends into cool and withdrawn, the video maintains a peculiar power of familiarity and intimacy. Very nicely done.
