Best Covers: Fenech-Soler “I wanna be your lover”

Electropop duo Fenech-Soler just dropped an EP that consists of covers of some of the 80s greatest hits. Appropriately titled “The Covers EP”, Fenech-Soler pays tribute to Prince, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Robin S., and Janet Jackson. The group released “Zilla”, their second album, in February, so it’s a nice surprise to get more music from them. Fenech-Soler does a great job keeping the essence of the original songs while infusing it with their unique style of electronic, pop, and a little rock. Prince’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” is definitely our favourite one.

Best Covers: Seu Jorge ‘Rebel Rebel’

Known for being both an actor and a renewer of Brazilian pop be it solo or with Farofa Carioca, the band with which he debuted in 1998, Seu Jorge comes to Primavera Sound with a very special project: the live reinterpretation of the songs from “The Life Aquatic”, Wes Anderson’s film for which the Brazilian artist stripped down and put into Portuguese classic songs by David Bowie such as “Rebel Rebel”, “Life On Mars?”, “Starman”, “Five Years” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide”. This re reading of Bowie’s songs is only one of the multiple facets of a musician who has spent over fifteen years mixing samba, funk and bossa nova to offer his own vision of popular Brazilian music. He was playing last week at Primavera Sound.
