Natalie Angiuli Covers Katy Perry’s “Roar”

Last year, we had the pleasure of premiering this New York-turned-LA singer/songwriter’s music video for the wonderful title track from her New Hands EPSo, while we patiently wait for new original music from Natalie Angiuli, we’re happy to again feature her here on DSIMH with her cover of Katy Perry’s latest single, “Roar“. The adorable self-filmed video shows Angiuli in her apartment recording all the instruments herself, jumping on her couch, and hanging out with her cats. Her arrangement is more stripped down than the original, focusing on jangly acoustic guitars and layers of her sweet vocals. Ringing guitars, sprinkles of piano, and simple percussion round everything out while she dances around the room in her Roy Lichentstein POP shirt and her pale yellow telecaster.


Yo quiero ser esteriotipado. Yo quiero ser clasificado.

Here’s an awesome rendition of the Descendent’s 1982 hit, “Suburban Home,” covered by the ultra-talented four-man garage punk band Fidlar. This is the first of a 14-track compilation of covers named, FILTER Presents: Milo Turns 50. The compilation is in honor of Descendents’ frontman Milo Aukerman who turns 50 on January 1st.

The compilation features FIDLAR, Mike Watt, Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, YACHT, and Tijuana Panthers among others. Filter Magazine will drop the compilation on January 1.!

What better way to start blogging again than with an Eliza Doolittle cover? The only explanation for our absence is that there’s way too much going on in our lives that it has made it near-impossible for us to blog full-time and still be sane.

This cover of Frank Ocean’s “Swim Good” is too good to pass up. Well, I’m pretty biased when it comes to Eliza, but still–she does an amazing job. I’m pretty sure I’m going to post all of her covers here soon.


Arguably one of the greatest bands ever, Linkin Park strut their creative ways to cover one of the biggest sensations in music at the moment. The band covered Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” at the iTunes Festival in London’s Roundhouse on Monday night.

This is too dope.

I’m a sucker for covers. I’m also a sucker for cute UK chicks. With that in mind, there’s no surprise that I absolutely love Ellie Goulding and her cover of The Knife’s “Heartbeats” from 2003′s Deep Cuts, which was also covered in acoustics by Jose Gonzales. You guys might remember her from BBC Radio when she covered and completely turned Rihanna’s “Only Girl” into one of the best covers I’ve heard in some time. Check it out:
