Best Covers: Sharon Van Etten “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down”

Sharon Van Etten reportedly hit the studio late last year to begin work on her follow-up to 2014’s impressive Are We There LP. In the meantime, she’s collaborated with artists like Lee Ranaldo, Maggie Rogers, Marissa Nadler, and Michael Cera (yup), in addition to contributing to the Twin Peaks reboot and reissuing her debut album. Now, she’s back with yet another new song to help pass the time, this time a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down”.

Filmed as part of BBC’s classical music concert series, BBC Proms, Van Etten was backed on the cover by the Heritage Orchestra for a performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The LCD cut is a fitting choice for the series, as this year’s theme is “New York: Sound of a City”.

Music by Bergman: Artificial Pleasure

The British trio’s foray into an electro-funk-rock landscape—inspired by the sounds of Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, LCD Soundsystem, and both Davids (Bowie and Byrne)—has been, for the most part, organic. Artificial Pleasure is barely two year old with some singles , and most of their material is mixed and produced by the band’s members; the London-based group consists of Phil McDonnell (vocals and guitar), Dom Brennan (synths), and Lee Jordan (drums), all of whom were previously part of the band Night Engine.

Divus Julius presents…Blood Cultures

New Jersey’s cryptic new electronic solo artist, Blood Cultures, has emerged into the local scene with a seductive and well thought-out debut single, titled “Indian Summer.” Although a biography is not provided online, and the one picture available conceals the musician’s face, there’s obviously something humble about this music, that could be described as a complex yet catchy blend of LCD Soundsystem’s fanfare with the ambience of Tycho, complemented by the artist’s own soothing vocals, that sounds like they are coming out from a bedroom’s corner.

Hit of the week: Arcade Fire ‘Everything Now’

Arcade Fire have announced their fifth album Everything Now will be released next month on Columbia. You can now hear the official stream of the title track after the band’s surprise released it on 12″ at Primavera Festival this week.

The disco-inflected track is produced by the band along with Pulp’s Steve Mackey and Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, though no details have surfaced about the full tracklist or production credits. Arcade Fire’s last album, 2014’s Reflektor was produced by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, although he might be a little busy with bringing his own band back to help out this time. Everything Now is out July 28.
