Wavvy Wednesday Vol. 17
GIRLI Takes Over London With "So You Think You Can F**k With Me Do Ya"
When this track landed in our inbox, we were a bit lost for words. GIRLI is a 17 year old musician based out of London, England. Despite her young age, she was already seen career highlights such as opening of Wet and Baio (of Vampire Weekend), along with being featured as one of Dazed and Confused Magazine's "Ten Artists You Should Be Listening to In 2016".
This week, the singer released the video for her potential Electropop anthem, "So You Think You Can F**k With Me Do Ya", in which her and her thrift-savvy pals unleash beautiful havoc onto the streets of London. The song itself channels distinct influences from the likes of Grimes, PC Music and our girl, Charli XCX. It serves as a vibrant bravado for anyone who might be thinking about stepping in GIRLI's way, a track so wavvy, it might come alive and smack you with a surfboard!
LNDN DRGS Keep The G-Funk Alive With "Susan"
LNDN DRGS are one of the latest acts to sign to A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs' ever-eclectic Fool's Gold Records. The duo flawlessly finesse their talents while boolin' around Jay Worthy's hometown of Bompton.
Aside from the logistics of the video, their hometown pride shines bright with the rapper/producer duo flawlessly flowing over Sean House's simple yet groovin' G-Funk beat. LNDN DRGS' are set to release a free album on the Fool's Gold imprint titled Aktive, sometime in the near future.
Love Thy Brother Bring New Life to JHYVE's "Ruby" With Remix
With every remix they've released, Love Thy Brother always find interesting ways to add a fresh new perspective to what are usually already enjoyable songs. Whether it's Dada Life's "One Smile" or Banks' "Drowning", the boys certainly know how to keep it consistent.
This stays the same when touching upon the brothers' latest remix, a flip or fellow Toronto born artist JHYVE and his track "Ruby". With "Ruby", LTB take JHYVE's smooth R&B track and provide it with an equally as sensual remix, which they describe as a track that "works both on the radio and the dancefloor."
Lana Del Rey Covers Daniel Johnston for Upcoming Short Film
Ever since her mesmerising hit, "Young And Beautiful", it became known that some of Lana Del Rey's best material comes from songs written for movies. That sentiment stays true with her latest tune, a cover of Daniel Johnston's "Some Things Last A Long Time".
Not only does the cover find Del Rey breaking out of her comfort zone with something more acoustic-based, Lana also nails her vocal emulation of Johnston, hitting the notes scarily near-parallel to the original.
