Best Covers: Marissa Nadler ‘Seabird’

Marissa Nadler tends toward the moody and ethereal, layered angelic vocals with a dark undercurrent in Allessi Brothers cover. For “Seabird,” off her forthcoming EP The Wrath of the Clouds (a companion piece to last year’s full-length The Path of the Clouds) she ups the energy a bit, turning this soft-rock hit into a swooning indie-pop number.

Best Covers: Dave Winnel ‘Africa’

Sydney-based EDM producer Dave Winnel is the latest to perform for triple j’s Like A Version segment, offering his take on Toto’s 1982 hit ‘Africa’.

Winnel was joined in the studio by Rob Edwards, Jack Robert, ANDRÉ and KLP, the latter two handling vocal duties while Winnel manned a rack of analogue synths, Edwards performed keyboards and harmonies, and Robert delivered electronic percussion on a pad setup.
