Swedes do it better. Stockholm-based musician Per Magnanimous, formerly of The Sonnets, returns under his Sportsman guise with this fragile cover of Taylor Swift’s “Begin Again”, which was produced by fellow Swedish producer and frequent collaborator HNNY. Give it a spin above, and drive slow.

In Sportsman’s own words: “I was in my car driving with HNNY. It was winter. We were on an island on the east coast of Sweden. We were listening to this song. I love Taylor and this is my favourite. It’s always being played like a film in front of me. I love that it takes place in a café and the story… Being kind of fucked over and saved by someone new. Johan [Cederberg, HNNY] said it sounds like a Sportsman song. He thought I should make a cover. What’s past is past.”

Taken from their upcoming two-track “First To Cry” EP due on June 17th, “I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry” is a gorgeous guitar-driven deep house groover and worthy of repeat listens.

And she’s back! Róisín Murphy covers classic Italian pop tracks from the 60′s and 70′s for her new EP called “Mi Senti”, her first solo material since 2012′s great single “Simulation” for Permanent Vacation. The release will feature five electronic cover versions of Mina’s “Ancora Ancora Ancora” and “Non Credere”, Patty Pravo’s “Pensiero Stupendo”, Gino Paoli’s “La Gatta”, and Lucio Battisti’s 1976 hit “Ancora Tu”, which you can now stream above. The EP also contains one original song, “In Sintesi”, by Murphy.

In her own words: “In these songs, emotions are at the surface of things and that is what I found again and again when I was researching Italian music and that is what I feel from the language, when I speak it and even without understanding it, I feel close to love, close to the truth about human motivation.”

Róisín Murphy’s “Mi Senti” EP will be released by The Vinyl Factory on May 28th as a limited edition gatefold vinyl. The first 500 copies will be signed by Róisín Murphy. You can pre-order your copy here.
