Cover face off: Azealia Banks ‘Barely Legal’ (The Strokes) vs Solange ‘Stillness is the Move’ (The Dirty Projectors)February 28th, 2013 | Cover Video of the Week | tapedekel | No Comments
Since we’ve been on a major Strokes kick over here it might be worth it to mention this Azealia Banks cover of Is This It album track “Barely Legal.”
Unfortunately, Banks’ take on our favourite New York five-piece is a disappointing turn, replacing The Strokes’ signature gritty sound with busy indie R&B/electro production, while Banks barely breaks a sweat in the vocal department.

It’s amazing how one measly divorce and a lukewarm reception to a so-so solo album can change a guy’s priorities.
Ben Gibbard has spent years and years telling us that The Postal Service was a bit of one-time magic that he’d never come back to. Well, this week, he proved himself a liar.
The 10th anniversary reissue of the band’s totally ubiquitous and legendary 2003 album Give Up will contain a 15-track bonus disc consisting of remixes, live recordings, one random Phil Collins cover for good measure, and, most significantly, two new, unheard tracks.
But that’s not even the big news. Gibbard will reunite with Jimmy Tamborello for a set at Coachella 2013, and “more dates are in the works” — including the just announced Primavera festival alongside Blur.
For many of us, these dates could be the realization of a decade-old dream: we will finally get the chance to slow-dance with our Grade 12 crush to a live concert rendition of “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight.”
You’ve done right by the Millennials, Ben. We salute you
