We got your recovery covered after last weekend!!!


If you
think this a decent cover by @Griselda, check out the cover we have for you
here at Jamforest HQ.

Goosed is
not the word after the weekend that was in it so we hope these will ease you
onto the week.

The already fab ‘Jealous’ by Labrinth is given a dreamy dressing down by one of my faves Jessie Ware who gets extra points by throwing in some Kanye lyrics at the end.

Aussie folk singer Julia Jacklin slows the tempo way down on this Strokes classic and puts the spotlight on the beautiful lyrics.

My favourite of her original is Dont Let the Kids Win but leave it off unless you need a solid cry, and if you do this is your only man.

A little more upbeat with this offering from another Aussie, Chet Fakers covering of Chi towns own Sonia Dada. It doesn’t differ a whole bunch from the original but if it aint broke, don’t fix it.

I openly don’t like punk music. I can’t lie, I respect the movement and the ideals behind it but the music I cant get on board with. You won’t ever catch me wearing a forty euro Dead Kennedys t-shirt from Topshop. That being said, my favourite band the Red Hot Chilli Peppers covered Havana Affair by the Ramones and its totally transformed. This is them at Slane in 2003..check John out hitting those high notes.

Two of the greats combined, Hozier covering Van the Man. This song gives me the chills and wanderlust and I just want to hop on a plane and never return. Which is ideal on a Monday wrecked tired trying to do college work. An absolute gem of a song.

Another one for the Wanderlust, dreaming of unknown bedrooms in unknown cities with the smell of somewhere else in your nose. Could you cope with The Lumineers covering Dylan?

Another delight from them is Aint Nobodies Problem. You’re WELCOME PAL.

into something a little more comfortable with Ben Harpers cover of the late
great Marvin Gayes Sexual Healing. This is from his fantastic live album Live on
Mars that I had on nonstop when I was seventeen..ah better times.

Staying a
little shexxxeee, is January by Paolo Nutini. I am unsure as to whether
this is a cover or just an unreleased track (it has never turned up on any
releases) but nevertheless it is going on the list because I love it.

melancholy reimagining of Nina Simones reggae influenced original, a beautiful
version of Baltimore by the sublime Lianne Le Havas

Hope these
help cutting those corners todays. PEACE
