The Youtube Discovery of the Week is Steff Koeppen and her band Steff and the Articles.
Yesterday, I searched for The Mars Volta’s Inertiatic ESP and Koeppen’s cover showed up in the search results of Youtube. Inertiatic ESP is a hard song name to spell, but even a harder song to cover without making it sound like a parody.
Koeppen did it. She converted it into a great, different and maybe better song.
Since I’m not a native speaker of English, I could struggle for hours trying to find the right words to describe her voice and her music, using at least the words “indie”, “jazzy”, “pop” and lot of adjectives that I have to look up in the Dutch-English dictionary, but since I am lazy, I’ll summarize her music using two words: good music.
