"coffee" two ways

I was literally in the middle of writing a post about Miguel's latest super sexy (shocker) single when I stumbled across a cover already out by TIOJ faves Scavenger Hunt. Needless to say, it was a romantic and fortuituous moment for me that I had to share.

Take a listen first to Miguel's original that is a sex dream in and of itself and then somehow gets even better with the addition of DC rapper Wale.

And then enjoy Scavenger Hunt's cover, which is a bit more subdued yet still super sexy with female vocals. Their cover almost sounds like the soundtrack to a romantic montage in a Patrick Swayze movie. (I say that with the highest amount of praise, for the record.)

{THROWBACK} "ain't nobody (loves me better)"

Jasmine Thompson picked a perfect song to cover to introduce us to her beautiful British vocals. Desk dance to her feature on Felix Jaehn's rework of Chaka Khan's hit "Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)". Seriously, if you don't find yourself dancing, you may want to go see a doctor.

And just in case you need to remember how great the original version of this song was...

the old ceremony is my jam

Public service announcement: add The Old Ceremony to your summer road trip playlists now. This North Carolinian band has been around for a while, but put them on your radar now. The song that won me over was "Til My Voice Is Gone," but take a listen to their whole Noisetrade collection that they released in anticipation of their upcoming album, Sprinter.
