Ed Sheeran, a man who can seemingly turn any song (and we mean ANY song) into a sad sappy love fest, has taken a turn with his mood with touring mate Passenger. The two covered both Blackstreet‘s “No Diggity” and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s inescapable “Thrift Shop,” mashing them up in English acoustic goodness.
No secret that we love Telephoned. The covers duo of Maggie Horn and Sammy Bananas consistently bring one of the freshest approaches to covers out there. We named last year’s Off the Hook mixtape the third-best covers album of 2010 and now they’ve released another: Good Call. It finds the duo branching out even further to redefine the “cover” concept. Their general M.O. – cover one song while remixing it with another – proves more fluid than ever and the song selection follow suit.
