Man oh man, Chelsea Cutler just doesn’t let up on these intoxicating acoustic covers. The young singer from Connecticut might look small in stature, but her voice is big enough to shine through thick and heavy instrumentals like the one she produced for this Flume/Flatbush Zombies cover. The song she’s covering throughout the majority of the track is actually a remix that Flume did of Collarbone’s Turning, which is a super trippy, repetitive, alternative-indie-experimental single. Her distinct voice has such a natural flow to it; every word is enunciated immaculately, and her vocals illuminate the song as she harmonizes with herself over the guitar-centered production. The ambient sound she achieved on this release is a far cry from what was done on the original two tracks, but if you have any appreciation for indie music you’ll enjoy Chelsea Cutler’s ‘Harley Trees’. If you grab the free download, be a good fan and follow her on Soundcloud and Twitter.

Brooklyn-based producer Sweater Beats breathes some new life into Flume and Chet Faker’s hit Drop the Game, released last year. While the melodies from the original are still very apparent in this remix, Sweater Beats threw in some super clean cuts, big-room synths, and my favorite addition, a violin refrain. Overall, super smooth rework from our man Sweater Beats. Look out for the drop of his Cloud City EP on HW&W this Fall.
