Lorde is one of the most impressive 17 year-olds out there. With her interesting combinations of electronics, synths, and pitch-perfect vocals, many artists currently look to her for inspiration. Some of these artists have covered Lorde’s most popular tracks, “Royals” and “Team.” Although there are tons of talented people out there performing Lorde, these are the few that caught my eye.
10. Questlove and Kirk Douglas – “Royals”
You may know Questlove from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon or from the band The Roots. Here Questlove takes a chance with Kirk Douglas covering Lorde’s “Royals” in the best way possible. Not only is this duo taking on the 17 year old, but also exploring their more sultry side with Lorde’s song.
Today’s Jam of the Day is a long one. It comes from Televison’s 1977 album with the same name, Marquee Moon. It’s hard to explain just how great this song is. So put on some headphones, sit back, relax, and press play.
“Whites Not My Color This Evening” by Cherry Glazerr is our Jam of the Day. The L.A. band just released this video for the three minute long reverb heavy song. It’s from their debut LP Haxel Princess out now on Burger Records.
