[News] Miike Snow, Lykke Li Form New Collective/Label: 'Ingrid'

Swedish artist Miike Snow and Lykke Li, along with Peter Bjorn & John and The Teddybears, have come together to create a new collective/record label named Ingrid. As the promotional video for the label states, the collective was created with with the intent of “creating straight from the heart right to the people without any middle hands,” which gives the artists involved the “opportunity for creation, collaboration, and compilation sonically and visually.” With this in mind, the artists involved in the label will continue to work with their current record labels. After the jump, you can watch both of the promotional videos for Ingrid.

[Listen] Peter, Bjorn & John - "Dig A Little Deeper" (Mayer Hawthorne Remix)

This was a nice surprise that came up earlier in the week. SKoA's favorite crooner Mayer Hawthorne remixes one of our favorite tracks from PB&J's latest album Gimme Some. Check out the remix for "Dig A Little Deeper" below and get your soulful dance on and if you haven't heard or picked up either Peter, Bjorn & John's latest album Gimme Some or Mayer Hawthorne's amazing, recently released sophomore album How Do You Do, you honestly need to get your head examined because you are missing out on some fine tuneage. Anyways, enjoy.

[Watch] Peter Bjorn & John - "Dig A Little Deeper" x "Second Chance" Live on Kimmel

[Listen] Peter, Bjorn & John – "Try a Little Tenderness" (The Ray Noble Orchestra/Otis Redding Cover)

Two months ago if you'd of asked the majority of music lovers about Otis Redding or the track featured here, "Try A Little Tenderness", people may have scratched their heads and continued to go on with their daily business whilst muttering "who is that guy asking me to try some tenderness?" under their breath. However, due to it's use in the recent track from Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne, (it's "Otis" in case you're wondering), the track has seen remixes over the past month and if you so wish, you can now ask people about Otis without the aforementioned confusion. Maybe.

Anyway, with the new found adoration/radio play for the track comes this cover of original track from those swedish guitar donning men that are Peter, Bjorn and John. Taking the non obvious cover, they turn it into a poppy yet fuzz filled direction that shows a different approach, all be it a pretty cool one that's well worth a watch/listen. Check it out below via A.V. Undercover.
