Song: No Diggity
Artist: Chet Faker
Album: Thinking In Textures
Genre: Alternative
In short: Chet Faker’s cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” strips it of its Hip-Hop roots and dresses it up in a dreamy production. A pretty bold move for a new artist. Check it out below.

SOTD: The Robot – Alessi’s Ark

Song: The Robot
Artist: Alessi’ Ark
Album: Soul Proprietor
Genre: Indie
In short: Alessi Laurent-Marke left school to pursue music at the age of 16, and by 17 she had a major record label deal which lasted for only one album, before she moved to independent record label Bella Union. The first EP released under the new label was Soul Proprietor, a four-song set that showcases Alessi’s strengths as a songwriter and composer. For those who aren’t familiar with her, “The Robot” will serve as a great introductory number.

SOTD: Think Of You – A Fine Frenzy

1 A Fine FrenzySong: Think Of You
Artist: A Fine Frenzy
Album: One Cell In The Sea
Genre: Indie-Pop
In short: A sad tale of love gone wrong. Alison Sudol’s (her real name) heart-breaking lyrics (“Just to put your mind at ease, you don’t own me anything/you paid me well in memories”) will definitely get to you. This song works better in winter.
