It’s always lovely to hear something new from Rose Ellinor Dougall. The ex-Pipette/Mark Ronson tourmate unleashed a new 3-song EP entitled “The Distractions” on her Bandcamp yesterday, and what’s more, they’re yours to take for free. You don’t even have to enter your email address or anything, how nice of her! These new songs mark a more guitar-based sound from her, like an extension on her excellent Smiths-esque single “Carry On”. I embed my favourite track below.
Last week, Mark Ronson & The Business Intl‘s member Rose Elinor Dougall mysteriously asked for Australian cover suggestions on Facebook. It turned out it was for Triple J’s “Like A Version” feature, and apparently rather than choosing a random SAW-era Kylie song “for the LOLZ”, the band took the cool route and covered Tame Impala’s “Solitude Is Bliss”, which by itself is a great swirling psych-pop jam. Rose and Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow) took charge of the vocals. Listen to their take below, and get a bonus cover of Alicia Keys’ “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” featuring MNDR done for Live Lounge last year after the jump.
