Rogue Wave – Maps (Yeah Yeah Yeahs Cover)
Rogue Wave did an incredible job of covering the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ breakthrough hit “Maps” for the Valentine’s Day-themed compilation, Sweetheart. I keep pushing this compilation, but it’s almost V-Day! So it’s now or never. I think of the songs I have let you in on so far, Rogue Wave’s cover of “Maps” is one of my favorites. They completely made the song their own. Listen to “Maps”:
Thieves Like Us – Drugs In My Body
“Drugs In My Body” is my first taste of this Swedish-American trio based out of Paris (yeah, seriously). As far as I can tell, Thieves Like Us have crafted a charming aesthetic between pop and nu-rave in the same vain as Hot Chip, Van She, and Passion Pit. So if you’re a fan of any of those acts, I recommend a listen or two.
