St. Vincent has shared her cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Emotional Rescue,” which she recorded for the A Bigger Splash soundtrack. Made with Sounwave and Terrace Martin, the track definitely sounds like an Annie Clark joint after they gave it this makeover, and it answers the question of what Dance music would sound like if it were made in outer space. I mean, just in case you were wondering.

Hear the cover below. Continue Reading

Los Colognes – “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” (Rolling Stones Cover)

posted by Oscar December 18, 2015

Lately I’ve been obsessively listening to the Rolling Stones’ Rock & Roll Circus so it’s fair to say that anything related to the music heard on that album will get my attention, and so here I am sharing a new cover of an iconic Stones song. Los Colognes have taken on the almost impossible task of releasing a credible Rolling Stones cover, and lucky for us (and you can also say, for them) they have achieved it.

The Nashville group covered “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” giving the badass crunchy riff a wavy and colorful reimagining. Hear it above with its accompany visuals.

Video: The Rolling Stones Perform “Hang On Sloopy” for First Time Since 1966

posted by Oscar May 31, 2015

The Rolling Stones have embarked on their Zip Code Tour and for their second stop they found themselves in Columbus, OH, a show which saw the iconic unearth a previous live staple of theirs. “Hang On Sloopy” by the McCoys was declared “The Official Rock Song of the state of Ohio” back in 1985 and since then it’s an anthem for all the major Cleveland sports teams and the Ohio St Buckeyes,  so it was only fitting that the Rolling Stones would break the streak and perform the track for the first time since 1966. Check that out above.

Below you can see the band perform their classic track “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” with a little help from the Ohio University Singers from Athens, Ohio. Continue Reading

The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

The Rolling Stones’s Sticky Fingers reissue is due out on June 9 and today they offered another look at what will be include in the full deluxe version. Following up “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “Wild Horses” is now “Bitch.”

The Rolling Stones – “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” (Alternate Version)

posted by Oscar April 28, 2015

The Rolling Stones

One of the greatest bands ever, The Rolling Stones, are set to reissue their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers and today they’ve delivered one of the special rarities that can be found on that release.

The band previously released an acoustic version of “Wild Horses” and today they’ve delivered an alternate take of “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” (recently of Guitar Hero fame). This version still packs a pretty punch like the original thanks that iconic guitar lick remaining intact, but it’s only half as long as the LP’s epic and it’s more of “jam” than the fully-formed tracked we all grew up loving.

Check it out below. Continue Reading
