The day after 2013's Grammys marks a big day for releases in music (new Postal Service and Timberlake), but the electronic indie duo Purity Ring are flying low under the mainstream radar with their cover of Soulja Boy and Ester Dean's "Grammy". This is uncommon for Purity Ring these days, as they have nearly become a household name after releasing last years Shrines to stellar critical reception.
Their newest cover moves away somewhat from what made last year's 4AD/Last Gang Records release so unique, with singer Megan James delivering a great R&B impression and putting her own spin on dropping Soulja's Boy's rhymes. As always, Purity Ring's captivating beats, provided by Corrin Roddick, give the song direction and can cause you to close your eyes and bask in the production.
Speaking of Roddick's beats, they seem to stand alone pretty well: take a listen to/download the instrumentals of last years "Belispeak II" featuring Danny Brown above, also available for download via Purity Ring's YouTube channel.
