Best Covers: Ciccone Youth ‘Addicted To Love’

With equal parts parody and appreciation, alternative legends Sonic Youth teamed with fIREHOSE’s bassist Mike Watts to create a short-lived project name Ciccone Youth with the joke being that Ciccone is the real last name of Madonna. Ciccone Youth first recorded versions of Madonna’s Into The Groove and Burnin’ Up before targeting Palmer’s iconic Addicted To Love.

Hit of the week: Sundara Karma ‘ Illusions’

Reading four piece Sundara Karma drop their new single Illusions and tease their second album. Listen to Illusions below.

Co-produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, Les Rhythm Digitales) and Kaines (Alex Robertshaw from Everything Everything), Illusions takes the band in a new direction. The song is a slow burner that is reminiscent of the latest Arctic Monkeys record or a latter day Franz Ferdinand ballad.

Illusions follows on from the critically acclaimed debut album Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect, which was released in 2017.

Best Covers: Lana Del Rey ‘You Must Love Me’

Lana Del Rey’s covered a song by Madonna, but it might not be a track you were expecting.

She’s taken on a song from ‘Evita’ while contributing to Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s new album ‘Unmasked: The Platinum Collection’, which sees a bunch of artists doing their own covers of his show tunes. She’s offered up a version of ‘You Must Love Me’ (the only track in the movie that wasn’t also featured in the stage play).

El cor rebel de Madonna

El Rebel Heart Tour de la diva pop nord-americana, la gira amb què presenta el seu 13è àlbum, ‘Rebel heart’ (2015), s’atura a Barcelona, en la seva única parada a la Península i una de les poques al sud d’Europa.

Afectat per filtracions que van obligar Madonna a avançar la publicació de la meitat de les cançons del disc al desembre del 2014, l’àlbum compta amb la col·laboració de productors de perfil alt com Kanye West, Diplo, Avicii i Sophie, i ens mostra l’Ambició Rossa en forma i en la seva faceta més ballable, amb un dels millors ‘singles’ que ha publicat en els últims anys, ‘Living for love’, i abraçant els anomenats ‘Third World beats’. Avui i demà al Palau Sant Jordi.
