Adele in America; covers Strokes

On Adele’s album 19, she delves in the trials, torture, and bliss of life with her hybrid of self-styled soul/r & b infusions. The Londoner’s rich voice combines with equally seductive melodies, already charming the likes of you with the transcendent chorus of “Chasing Pavements.” While recalling so many of the greats, Adele has so much of her own to offer, sparing us the boredom by keeping things dynamic and going huge so many times on numbers like the totemic rain dance “Cold Shoulder.” Having said that, she manages almost as well when she decides to lay back, such as on the sauntering “Crazy For You,” and the Carole Kingesque “Make You Feel My Love.” Check out Adele covering The Strokes’ “Last Night” below:
