Just in time for the weekend! My all time favorite Outkast tune is covered flawlessly by Tame Imapala on Like A Version from Youtube’s triplejtv. Keeping in line with Andre 3000 & Big Boi’s smooth baby-making vibes, Tame Impala leaves a little wiggle room to blend in their characteristic space rock psychedelia, twisting it into a groovy, mellowed-out 60′s rock tune.
Clearly the number of soulful British songstresses knows no bounds. Elli Ingram is a new voice out of the UK in the vein of Adele, similar in tone and gravitas but with more edge and more swag. Check this cover (below) she does of Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” (arguably one of the best songs on his new album good kid m.A.A.d city). This version gives the original a run for its money. It’s sexy and melodic. Not only does it show off the versatility of Kendrick’s lyricism, but it totally amps up that Janet Jackson “Any Time, Any Place” sample.
Thankfully, Elli Ingram isn’t a one-hit wonder. While she also does covers of Kanye West, the original stuff she’s been recording is strong too. Her album “Sober” is supposed to drop in May. In the meantime, check out our another one of our favorite from the record, ballad “Silver and Gold”.

This is awesome. Canadian groups Hands & Teeth and The Balconies joined together for a live recording of Justin Bieber’s mega-hit “Baby“. The outcome has transformed Bieber’s dance hip-hop track into a sixties revival bubblegum pop gem.
