What happens when Ellie Goulding covers Alt-J? Musical karma sutra. In her usual, breathy fashion, she nails the esoteric “Tessellate” and transforms it into something completely different with the help of producer Xaphoon Jones (there’s even a jazzy interlude featuring Bill Clinton’s favorite instrument: the sax!) Even better, it’s a rare opportunity to decipher the lyrics of otherwise mumbly (but cool) singing style of British band Alt-J.
This is a funky fresh bare-boned version of the original, it’s up to you to decide which one is better! [soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/94304790″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
