Best Covers: John Grant ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’

The bop titled, God’s Gonna Cut You Down, was popular by American singer Johnny Cash who recorded his rendition of the song in 2003, and it has since appeared in several TV shows and film.

Inside Man -BBC’s dramma series- uses a special cover of the song performed by John Grant, an American and Icelandic musician who is known as the lead singer of The Czars.

Best Covers: Nova Twins ‘Break My Soul’

Heading into BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Nova Twins performed a cover of Beyoncé’s ‘Break My Soul’.

Nova Twins release their second album ‘Supernova’ earlier this year.  Nova Twins emerged as fully-fledged rock icons. With a glitchy, genre-smashing guitar sound incomparable to anything else out there and a magnetic bad bitch attitude.

Hit of the week: Celeste “Stop This Flame”

Celeste has been crowned the winner of BBC Music’s Sound Of 2020 poll. The British-Jamaican singer was chosen by a panel of 170 tastemakers including critics, DJs, radio and TV producers, streaming experts, festival bookers, and alumni artists like Billie Eilish and Lewis Capaldi. In celebration of the win, she’s shared a new song, a catchy and vaguely jazz-indebted uptempo R&B song called “Stop This Flame.” Check it out below.

Best Covers: PJ Harvey ‘Red Right Hand’

Music from the first five seasons of BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders will be collected in a new double album due out on November 15th.

Notably, the set marks the first-ever commercial release for PJ Harvey’s cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand”. The Bad Seeds’ original version has long served as the series’ theme, but in 2014 Harvey was commissioned to cover the song in an effort to make the series seem “less American.”

Els científics més indies

La banda californiana We are Scientists es van instal·lar a Brooklyn però el seu èxit li va venir de l’altra banda de l’oceà: a Anglaterra, el seu so, proper a grups de l’escena indie britànica, va cridar l’atenció a mitjans com la BBC o en NME. El seu darrer àlbum Helter Seltzer, d’aquest abril, té hits collonuts com “Buckle” o “Too Late”. Aquesta nit a Razzmatazz.
