I've heard a few different covers of Seven Nation Army, but when I first heard this version (on a mix-tape) my jaw nearly hit the floor. I instantly knew it was Alice Russell on the vocals, then later discovered the track was by Nostalgia 77. You really need to crank this one up nice and loud to fully appreciate it!.

The track is taken from Nostalgia 77's album The Garden. Nostalgia 77 is Ben Lamdin, a funky, jazzy, down-tempo kind of artist signed to the Tru Thoughts record label.  His sound is very much like a crazy mix of Cinematic Orchestra, RJD2, and John Coltrane.  If you like your jazz funky, then definitely check this guy out.  As for Alice Russell, well, her talent really does speak for itself.  I wont even bother to list comparisons – if you like her take on Seven Nation Army, you'll love her other work – check out her albums Under The Munka Moon and My Favourite Letters. Alice Russell is also signed to Tru Thoughts records – hence the co-lab, no doubt.

Anyway, let me know what you think. Always good to hear feedback from people, animals, and machines, alike.
