This week, as usual, there was a lot of new stuff, including new singles from Little Dragon, Nouvelle Vague, and Simian Mobile Disco. The standout tracks for me were Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings’ cover of Prince’s “Take Me With U,” and the utterly unclassifiable Swedish swing-hip-hop formation Movits!, with “Swing FÃ¶r HyresgÃ¤stfÃ¶reningen.” I originally saw Movits! on the Colbert Report, so I guess I’m contributing to the Colbert Bump 🙂
This week I also had a themed set of unlikely cover versions, including Cibelle’s cover of Nirvana’s “About A Girl,” Mongo Santamaria’s version of Labelle’s “Lady Marmalade” and the cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Another Star” by the Japanese-Brazilian project Bossa Tres Jazz with singer Salome de Bahia.
The entire setlist is here as a Google spreadsheet.
