Rachael Lander [does] Daft Punk — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 10)

Are you all sufficiently Daft Punk crazed? I know I am. It’s the perfect album to welcome in the Summer of 2013. (Last year my summer album was Metric’s, Synthetica. Mmm. So good.) Today this cello cover of “Get Lucky” crossed my path. I must say, I’m quite taken with it. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Shall […]

Lola King [does] Labrinth — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 9)

Lola King [does] Labrinth — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 9)

It’s songs like this one that made me want to do a regular Cover Series feature in the first place. I really dig Labrinth’s, Earthquake, and I’m thrilled to have an excuse to put it up here on the blog. It’s definitely not something I would attempt to wax poetic over and admittedly, it doesn’t fit into […]

The Staves [cover] Keaton Henson — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 8)

Holy… w o w. This is hands down THE MOST beautiful thing I’ve heard in ages. Sure, everything that The Staves do is worthy of your appreciation and admiration — but this, I don’t know, it just undoes me. I’m quite smitten with Keaton’s music, and I’m an advocate for connection and collaboration, so I […]

Broken Anchor [does] Harvey Danger — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 7)

Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding; the cretins cloning and feeding… I know I’m not the only one who experienced a time-warp-sensation reading those lyrics. I’m taken back to the summer of 1998. I spent three weeks in Portland and two weeks in Seattle. It was music festival season and Harvey […]

FIND ECSTASY IN LIFE; THE MERE SENSE OF LIVING IS JOY ENOUGH. — Emily Dickinson So, I’ve been needing/wanting/planning to tell you all about my recent rendezvous to Los Angeles. Let’s do that, shall we? I can’t tell you how often I TRY to get to LA and don’t make it. I’ve even purchased airfare […]

The Ultimate Bearhug [does] Ben E. King — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 5)

VALENTINE EDITION Well hello, all you lovers. Happy February 14th! I’ve maybe mentioned it once or twice, but I’m not a holiday person. I make enemies almost every time I say that. I get the incredulous stares, the hesitant is-she-for-real glances, and then the judgement sets in: what kind of person doesn’t like HOLIDAYS?! (This […]

Chet Faker [does] Blackstreet — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 4)

Chet Faker [does] Blackstreet — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 4)

Volume 4 needs a drum roll. For real. Cover songs are often a controversial topic among music lovers. I see both sides of the topic, but I myself am very PRO-cover. Inspiration is found in nature, in a kind word, in a thoughtfully penned poem, in the laughter of children. Different things inspire different people […]
