Best Covers: Lykke Li “Time In A Bottle”

Lately, Lykke Li has been focusing her energy on her Swede-pop supergroup LIV, but she’s going solo again to drop off a faintly psychedelic cover of singer-songwriter Jim Croce’s 1973 hit “Time In A Bottle.”


Best Covers: Ty Segall ‘Everyone’s A Winner’

Prolific US garage rocker Ty Segall has been dropping singles like no tomorrow, and has now provided the method to his madness with the release of an album collecting those tracks titled Freedom’s Goblin. He’s also shared another fresh tune, this time around it’s a fuzzed out and catchy rendition of Hot Chocolate’s seventies disco/soul classic ‘Everyone’s A Winner.’

Best Covers: Chvrches “Time After Time”

Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches have been busy working on their allegedly very poppy third album with Greg Kurstin, but they broke their year-long hiatus from the stage earlier this week. As a part of the Holiday Variety Show at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre, Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry and synth player Martin Doherty covered Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”

Best Covers: First Aid Kit “Perfect Places”

Early next year, the Swedish neo-folk duo First Aid Kit will return with the new album Ruins. In the run-up to the new album’s release, they’ve also recorded a session for BBC Radio 2, playing a couple of live-in-studio covers. One of them is “Perfect Places,” the final song on Lorde’s instant-classic sophomore album Melodrama, giving it a rambling country feel.
