COVER YOUR TRACKS: Local Natives Cover Kanye’s “Ultralight Beam”

After hearing the first three beachy guitar chords, the Pablo in me leapt to his feet. I ran to my phone, opening Spotify to find none other than Local Natives. Furthermore, it’s a nice little combination of the verse I belt in the shower when I practice shedding my ultralight beams. Kanye is always winning cross-genre love, unlike some rappers. I think this cover showcases just how bomb The Life of Pablo really is, and while I still prefer the original, this cover can sit in your shoegaze, dream-rock playlist as a fitting homage to our lord and savior: Mr. West.

New Music Friday!

This week flew by for me, i can’t believe it’s already friday. So what were my new music favorites for this week? Let’s talk about it:

- Local Natives released a new song I Saw You Close Your Eyes. I don’t know how to feel about it, so let me know what you think.

- Glades released their song Dangerous. I would probably say this is my pop music vibe of the day. 

- London Grammar just announced their second album and released a new single Truth Is A Beautiful Thing. I am so ready for this album. 

-Circa Waves collabed with Pvris for Fire That Burns. This is a song that i didn’t know i wanted, but am glad it’s here.

- COIN, my babes, announced the title of their upcoming album How Will You Know If You Never Try. No official date for when it’s going to come out besides sooner than you think, so does that mean if i think tomorrow, it will come out today? One can only hope.

These are all of my favorites for this week, let me know if there are any i missed or what your favorites were!
