Got a few little gems for you all.
First of all, Amadou & Mariam feat. Manu Chao - Senegal Fast Food. Amadou and Mariam are blind Malinese husband and wife singers. They recorded an album, Dimanche à Bamako, with the French singer Manu Chao. It's my ultimate summer album - transports me right back to the red sands of Mali whenever I listen to it - and Senegal Fast Food's one of my favourite tracks from it.
Secondly, Flemish rock band Triggerfinger covers Lykke Li's I Follow Rivers. They do so in a fantastically tender and fragile way. Oh, and vocalist and guitarist Ruben Block has some awesome facial hair.
And finally a Dutch hip hop formation that's starting to rack up some fame over here: Chef'Special with Birds.
