Thanks to our friend Maiya at Blind I for the Kids for turning us onto this new unofficial Quadron video (but with the appearance of vocalist Coco, it’s official enough).

The Levi’s Pioneer Sessions keeps it moving with an amazing new cover, which may have been the catalyst a full blown Roots – John Legend soul cover album.

This is the first single to be released from Belleruche‘s third studio album, 270 Stories, set to hit the shelves on October 11th, 2010 on Tru Thoughts Records. The London based group’s lead singer, Kathrin deBoer, has a sound that epitomizes the word soulful. Look out for Belleruche’s album in the fall.
