Disclosure - Help Me Lose My Mind ft. London Grammar

I’ve had a really rough week so I turned to music to help.

This song was on repeat all day on Tuesday and it was right then and there that I decided that I would share it with Soundboard.  I don’t know how it took me so long to get into Disclosure’s stuff but better late than never, right? 

London Grammar’s voice is probably what seals the deal for this song.  It’s soothing, ethereal, and comforting.  Her music on her own is wonderful and in this collaboration, it’s absolutely amazing.  The song itself is upbeat and catchy (much like the rest of the music that I listen to) but there’s just something about it that I can’t put my finger on.

Disclosure is an English electronic duo that’s been around since 2010.  Help Me Lose My Mind is on the album, Settle.

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

#1055: dinosaur jr. - just like heaven (cure cover) (1989)

we here at the super groovy music video spectacular take music videos for cover songs so seriously that we’re lapsing into a very rare first-person plural. are you doubting our dead seriousness? then please consult with our various discussions of billy swan’s woozy, wobbly, heavy-lidded don’t be cruel, the staple singers slipping on talking heads, nick cave walking a mile in nancy sinatra’s boots, elliott smith and jon brion singing the prettiest kinks song, r.e.m. making boudleaux bryant proud, dwight yoakam’s wheels and carmelita, the fall doing the other half’s pharmacology gem mr. pharmacist, aaron neville crooning the main ingredient’s everybody plays the fooland even the esso trinidad steel band (with help from van dyke parks) banging out paul simon’s cecilia. and it is with similar seriousness when we write that dinosaur jr.’s just like heaven is the single best music video for a cover song ever made — and maybe one of the finest cover songs, too.
