All week we’ve been sharing some killer cover tunes, and this 8 Tracks Collection is no different. Check out some new covers, originals, and all-around great songs.
Speed Control – “Headlights”
Here’s the latest from Yukon band, Speed Control – this one has some great energy and an easy vibe you can’t help but dig.
Satellite & The Harpoonist – “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” (Neil young Cover)
The first cover track on this week’s list comes to us from Satellite & The Harpoonist – a fitting one, as Neil Young just celebrated his birthday earlier this week.
Loryn Taggart – “The River”
For the folk fans – Canadian artist Loryn Taggart has just released this beautiful song, and you need to hear it. Her voice is the star of this, while the simplicity and emotive music soothes.
Heather Valley – “The Last Song” (Lucero Cover)
Cover songs can be tricky, but sometimes it just works – especially when a wonderful musician recreates and does justice to a song by another band you dig. Check out Heather Valley’s cover of Lucero’s “The Last Song”
Ja’Wuan – “Cell Science”
This track is fun, catchy, and will make you bop – yes, bop. Cell Science is “psychedelic/British pop rock with classical Indian influences.”
Harp & Plow – “Harp & Plow”
Here’s a great folky Americana tune from Harp & Plow – it’s got a slow drawl, but will have you humming along right away. Looking forward to hearing more from this band.
Elephant – “Midnight in Manhattan”
If you like Andy Shauf, this new track from Elephant might be right up your alley – it’s lo-fi mellow indie pop, and easy to listen to.
iskwē & Tom Wilson – “Blue Moon Drive”
As soon as I heard this song, I had to put in on repeat. I was already a fan of Tom Wilson’s (both his music and his storytelling – his autobiography is a must-read), and I adore iskwē (go read our fantastic Q&A with her from last year), so it’s no surprise that they make great music together.
