Shamir recorded his own take of ’s “Dsharpg,” a more slowed-down and subdued version of the original that appeared on Van Etten’s 2010 album Epic. The cover is set to appear on the new double album project epic Ten that pairs the original album alongside covers of its songs by artists like Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams, Big Red Machine, and more.
Tel Aviv pop auteur Noga Erez has been steadily building steam for years now, and judging from its latest single, her new album KIDS might be the moment she pops off for real. Erez spent 2020 trickling out tracks from the LP — “Views,” “NO News On TV,” “You So Done” — all of them bursting with a zippy, almost cartoonish energy that neatly contrasts her lackadaisical sing-spoken vocals. Influences of Gorillaz, Fiona Apple, M.I.A., and Billie Eilish in the mix among other things.
Politically-minded, socially conscious, and armed with bucket loads of acerbic swagger, Noga Erez has always had her finger on the pulse of the present. Her new single ‘End of the Road’, however, shifts her focus to the future.
Fiona Apple covered The Waterboys’ “The Whole Of The Moon” for the end credits of the series finale of The Affair. Apple also made the theme song for the Showtime show, which debuted back in 2014.
