Humpday Covers Presents: Double Shot!

This Humpday celebrate in style with a special double shot of covers.

First up, this week we have Hot Chip covering Joy Division's hit "Transmission"

Hot Chip takes their dance-y indie flavor and makes "Transmission" their own. The funky bass and crunchy beats added with some distorted vocals and the occasional steel drum all culminate in the end to provide a really cool outcome.

Second, we have Beach House covering Queen's classic "Play the Game".

Take the away the crooning Freddie Mercury and add Victoria Legrand's dreamy soft voice plus synths and tamborines and you will get a very different version of this Queen classic. This track is really different from the original version, but it really works for Beach House.
