Chet Faker - No Diggity
We can't tell you much about the Chet Faker other than it is the musical alter ego for Melbourne, Australia based Nick Murphy, and that he is gearing himself up to be the new prince of the laid back down-tempo world. And while we could have easily posted any one of the three original pieces available to listen to via his website, like the impossibly catchy "I'm Into You" as an example, we chose his cover of Blackstreets "No Diggity." If someone can take a song like this and have it both be recognizable and original, they deserve a few helpings of critical praise. And Nick, if you're reading, drop us a communiqué...we'd love to learn of some impending album releases, etc... You can hear the rest here, and the above track is available through iTunes on the compilation Digging the Blogosphere.
