CHVRCHES returned to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to do another cover and this time the Scottish band tackled Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River.” The Electronic spin is everything you’d want a JT cover by CHVRCHES to be.

Video: Royal Blood Cover The Police’s “Roxanne” for the BBC Radio 1 ‘Live Lounge’

posted by Oscar February 18, 2015

Royal Blood hit up BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and for their live cover they choose to play The Police’s iconic song “Roxanne.” This was a typical Royal Blood affair with big riffs heavy on the distortion and thunderous drums. It’s not the Reggae-y song you might be used to, but that’s part of the charm.

Video: Eminem – “Stan” Live For BBC Radio 1

posted by Oscar November 22, 2013

While in the UK Eminem met up with radio personality Zane Lowe for an in-depth interview talking largely about his latest effort, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Since he was already at the BBC Radio 1 studios, Em took advantage of that and performed some tracks. The first was “Berzerk,” which went live earlier this week, and today we get a real classic from the Detroit native, “Stan.” This rendition gave more importance to the guitar riff and sounds a lot less dark and menacing than the studio version.

Still, the performance was good. Check it out above.

MS MR – “Do I Wanna Know?” (Arctic Monkeys Cover) on ‘Live Lounge Late’

posted by Oscar August 22, 2013

MS MR went on the Live Lounge Late for Phil and Alice on BBC Radio 1 and covered the Arctic Monkey’s “Do I Wanna Know?” I’ve silently been obsessing over this track (the same one Alex Wiley sampled on “Earfucked”) for a while now and after hearing it it sure feels like this live cover does it a bit of justice. MS MR’s version is noticeably more Pop but it still retains the gloom and slight darkness of the original.

Check it out above.
