MOMENTS | Mash-up: Sia Covers “Like A River Runs” for Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers Project

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Leave it to Jack Antonoff to have Sia cover of a song alongside a 15-minute spoken word track. Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers project released a live EP titled Like A River Runs that features an orchestral cover of “Like A River Runs.” Sia’s cover of the song is heightened by her signature haunting and slightly possessed howl (it’s Sia, so we wouldn’t expect anything less). The spoken word track in question is actually a 15-minute conversation with a dream specialist, titled “Dreams Aren’t Random,” in which Antonoff discusses his most poignant dreams over layers of moody synths.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Evian Christ Has Remixed Sia’s “Elastic Heart”

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

As if Sia’s “Elastic Heart” wasn’t dark enough already, producer Evian Christ’s remix gives the hit single a doubly ominous and minimalist twist. The remix strips away the song’s pop elements while keeping the vocals intact, pairing Sia’s emotive vocals with explosive drums and bursts of noise. Evian Christ was one of the co-producers on Kanye’s Yeezus, and has reportedly been working on Kanye’s upcoming album as well.

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

We’re all about user-generated content, and this is our way of sending our love to the artists who have used YouTube as a platform to showcase their creativity.
