Best Covers: Angel Olsen ‘Gloria’

Angel Olsen has announced a new EP called Aisles, which will see her covering a slew of songs from the ’80s. The EP will be out on her own Jagjaguwar imprint, somethingcosmic, on August 20th digitally and September 24th physically.

 Olsen has previewed the collection with a cover of Laura Branigan’s “Gloria.” Olsen definitely adds her own twist to the track, making it much more droning and melancholic. With a pulsing beat and wavering, disorienting instrumentals, this emotive track is a must-listen.

Introducing…PRESSYES

Vienna based producer/singer/songwriter PRESSYES has been working on his music in quiet for an extended period. Hidden away from the public’s eyes and ears, sheltered in his studio behind a stash of analog synthesizers and equipment PRESSYES worked on turning his vision of summery and sparkly yet psychedelic pop tunes alive.

After releasing his debut album ‘On The Run’ in 2018 PRESSYES is back with a new song Atlantic Ocean Spray.

4Ever Songs: Laurent Voulzy ‘Rockollection’

Rockollection was first released in April 1977 by French musician Laurent Voulzy with the help of composer and actor Alain Souchon, prolific in records and film themes, although not as well known outside the Gallic borders. On May 6 of that year, it reached the top spot on the charts.

The song includes the choruses of the songs: The locomotion, A hard days’ night, I get around, Gloria, Satisfaction, Mr. Tambourine Man, Massachusetts, Mellow Yellow and California Dreamin ‘ . All of them are linked with a bridge or interlude interpreted in French that recounts the story of a young man not so young and the memories of adolescence that these melodies of the 60s evoke, accompanied by a large chorus of female voices .
