"Strange Weather" is a gorgeous song originally written by Israeli-born, Paris-based musician Keren Ann, whose music you are likely to love if you haven’t yet become acquainted with it. Anna Calvi has recorded a stirring version of it with David Byrne for her forthcoming Strange Weather covers EP. It’s accompanying clip was filmed in New York City and directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz. The EP arrives on July 14th via Domino.

when: 2014 (I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now)
why: Got A Girl is the collaborative creation of Mary Elizabeth Winstead (of Scott Pilgrim fame) and Dan “The Automator” Nakamura. Influenced by ’60s French Pop and girl groups, their first LP comes out July 22. Winstead’s vocals are spot-on (silkier than The Bird and the Bee, less brassy than She & Him) and their newest single is infectious and lush.
