Putting yourself out there. It's easy to do nowadays. YouTube puts you face to face with potentially millions. Sound Cloud has a growing number of people putting up their demos. Searching through hundreds I give you here the best.
I had to search long, far, and wide for a good Portishead cover. Beth's songs are so hard to nail, but damn if Lehcar Thevoid
doesn't come close. This is a beautiful version of Roads that only gets better as the song goes on.
From right here in Brooklyn, Eric Chan gives us a mashed version of the Cranberries with Eagle Eye Cherry. Love
the double tracked vocals. Well done Eric.
What captured me first is brittmesi pretty awesome photo. She does a decent rough piano cover of Bat for Lashes Laura.
Again props to her for tackling this tough song.
...And then we find the reason we sifted through hours of these. thatPoppy not only does amazing covers, she does them
on a professional buzz worthy level. Something tells me she's going to make future mixes as well.
Some guy going by the name "Danz Cheng Shih Ee" from Malaysia gives a pretty damn beautiful cover of Coldplay.
What Leila Rosales misses in guitar playing. (It's slightly out of tune) She makes up for it in singing. There are quite a few
high parts here, and she nails them pretty well for a bedroom recording.
Someone famous makes the covers mix. Phoenix does their own take on Air's Playground Love. Nice to hear someone on a professional
level tackle a song acoustically to compare.
Sometimes it doesn't work. Here is an example when everything doesn't work(on any level). Gabe Faulk I'm sad to say you have "no hope, and no future".
