Kodaline: Live & Exclusive!

Sweet synchronized melodies! Emotion drips off of every word!

Irish indie-alt-rock-folk band Kodaline stopped by recently to spin musical tales EXCLUSIVELY for the ears of PerezHilton readers…

And those swoon-worthy lads tickled our souls when they performed inspiriting lullaby All I Want completely LIVE (above)!

CANNOT GET ENOUGH of Kodaline!

They are as fresh as newly-shorn grass yet they remind us of old-school Coldplay… with just a HINT of acoustic U2!

Simply beautiful! Tug on those heartstrings forever more, Kodaline!

Can YOU Sing??? Kacey Musgraves!!! Merry Go Round!! THESE FOLKS CAN!

What a fitting way to end our "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition series for the year! A GORGEOUS song from one of our favorite artists, whom we think is gonna be a big ol' superstar in 2013!

We asked you all to send us your best takes on Kacey Musgraves' masterpiece of a country song Merry Go Round, and you sent in some beautiful renditions!

THANK YOU to everyone who entered! Perez personally watched each and everyone! We can't wait to keep this up next year!!!!

Congratulations to our winner All About Maggie, who took out the alterna in Kacey's original and went super country fabulous with her take! Think Reba and Wynonna!

Check out the awesomeness above!

By contrast, Flatiron Junction, our wonderful second place winners, strip the song down and turn it into a pretty pretty pretty duet!

Check out their covers below and….

Listen To This: The A Team!

Filed under: AnglophiliaListen To This

She's like the female Ed Sheeran!

Kal Lavelle reminds us of our cherished ginger god - and that is a GREAT THING!

She is part of this great movement of British folk and singer/songwriter artists, like Laura Marling, whom she also reminds us of.

Lavelle's song The Ocean is so exquisitely beautiful and raw.

Just her voice and her acoustic guitar!

Simple and stunning!

Melodic!

And those lyrics!!!! It's as if she's talking directly to you!

Check out The Ocean (above)!

Listen To This: A Song For The Heart

Marcus totally wrote this about fiancee Carey Mulligan, right?

Whatever the inspiration, this is such a beautiful love song!!!! We first heard it back in August but it didn't linger and it's found itself back on our radar and on repeat!!!

Check out Mumford & Sons' I Will Wait (above)!

Sweet folky goodness!!!

Listen To This: The Scottish Do It So Well!

Filed under: Listen To This

Love this so much!

Amy Macdonald is back with a smash!!!

Folk yet mainstream. Accessible yet very much her.

Like a train, Slow It Down is anything but slow. The percussion of this song propels it forward so powerfully!

Her voice is so enchanting! And the melody is so sweet!

This is a love song but it feels like an anthem!!!

It reminds us of The Pretenders meets Edwin McCain.

Check it out above!
