Nuggets 316 – Covers IX

Wanda Jackson

Reasons to love a cover;

  • It is a fresh version of a song that you already like;
  • It is a song by one of your favourite artists covering a song that you haven’t heard before.

Another mix of covers follows. You will notice a change in the music player. Problems, problems… Click away and you will figure out what to do.

I am particularly fond of the Juliana Hatfield cover of the Olivier Newton John song. She has turned it into a real banger.

The Bennie & The Jets cover is also fab.

Looking forward to seeing Teenage Fanclub when they play next year.

Nuggets 217 – LoFi & Jangly

Nuggets 217 - LoFi and Jangly

 

This is one of my favourite mixes, and now it can be yours too. I particularly like the last Silo Halo track, a girl / boy duet with spidery jangly guitars over the top, and the two tracks from Browns.

Lucy from Tashaki Miyaki is on the cover. They were v. good at SXSW.

The playlist below is still missing a few tracks…
