COVER: Mark Ronson

“Just” [Radiohead]

Last night I explored the music of Mark Ronson and Dan Auerbach on mvyradio’s Hot Seat. I wasn’t quite sure how the hour-long show would turn out but I had the inspiration the night before and I thought I’d give it a shot. These are two of my favorite contemporary music producers – Ronson won Producer Of the Year at the 2008 Grammys and Auerbach took away that same award at this year’s ceremony.

I was actually quite pleased with how the two producers complimented each other. I played a set of music produced by Ronson and then a set produced by Auerbach and so on. All told, the hour of music was pretty stellar (*See list below). You can hear a replay of the show Sunday night at 10pm on mvyradio.

This is one of Ronson’s tracks that I really love, a cover of the Radiohead song “Just” with Alex Greenwald of the band Phantom Planet singing the vocals:

Easy Star All-Stars w/ Citizen Cope – “Karma Police”

Last night I got to check out Citizen Cope at Nectars here on the island. I had never seen him before and I only knew a few of his more popular tunes so I was excited to get a better feel for the music. It was a full band show and I had heard from friends that the full band experience was a much more energetic one compared to his solo show. They were right…the energy was great…lots of hardcore fans were there, singing along to every song and getting pumped up. I enjoyed it a lot. I guess I could compare the music to a more poppy, mainstream Radiohead sound. He’s got those repetitive, out-there vocals that float along and kinda make you feel like zoning out. In a good way. The highlight of the show for me was when he encored with the Radiohead tune “Karma Police”, which he had recorded with the Easy Star All-Stars. Check it out:

Radiohead – “Lotus Flower”

You may have heard that Radiohead suddenly announced the release of their new album, The King Of Limbs earlier this week. At first they said the album would be available for download Saturday, but they apparently changed their minds and now you can download it TODAY! I’m beyond excited for this album… I can’t wait until my workday is over and I can listen straight through at home tonight. For now, here’s the simple, but quite entertaining music video that Radiohead also released today, for a gorgeous tune – “Lotus Flower”:

Radiohead – “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi”

I was at a coffee shop meeting a friend earlier when this song came on. It’s SO damp and grey outside today… this song could not be more fitting. It’s definitely my favorite track from In Rainbows, and this is a killer live version on the Jools Holland show:
