(COVER) SONG OF THE DAY // HAIM covers Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”

HAIM-608x341

The first thing I saw when I woke up this morning was that sister trio HAIM have covered Miley’s latest offering, “Wrecking Ball,” which has become more iconic than I would have ever imagined.

The LA sibling indie rock outfit delivered a raw performance on BBC’s Live Lounge, an equally emotional version of the tune sans the surprising hammer licking and overly literal wrecking ball swinging on set. They were also fully clothed.

Please watch this, it’s really something special.

TEASER // Beach House’s new track “MYTH”

It’s only been 24 hours since this new teaser track was released, but it’s among my favourite tunes so far this year.

Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand, the duo from Baltimore, have been diffusing the pop soundspace with their dreamy textures and pulsing reverb since their 2008 release, Devotion.
After meeting them in person for a story I wrote for The Block, my admiration quickly intensified into a solid respect for their music and craft… but it’s difficult not to fall in love when two insanely talented musicians keep topping up your glass with more beer.
Enjoy.

VIDEO // THE MAKING OF BIDO LITO! MAGAZINE

Bido Lito! Magazine is a new arts and music publication, representing the local talents of Liverpool’s finest. I made this video to showcase the vision behind the publication, in time with the soft launch of the new website.

As the Online Editor at Bido Lito!, I made some sound friends and had a wonderful time learning about the music scene in Merseyside over the past year.

These pink pages will be sorely missed.
