Jose Vanders and I released this cover of ‘Blindsided’ by Bon Iver a year ago. You can download it for free on Bandcamp.
You can hear the accompanying split EP that we made at lukeandjose.com, and see a video of us larking around on tour on Vimeo.
I wish I was on tour now.
Blindsided remix competition: update
Myself and remix connoisseur Jose Vanders have started creating a shortlist of remixes for our parents to judge. Sorry for the delay but there were 70+ entries (which is a lot to listen to, like seven albums of music)!

The “Blindsided” cover by Luke Leighfield and Jose Vanders is the download of the day on Sex Music. Click on the link to download it!
Apparently our cover of Blindsided is “a song to have sex to”.
More Luke and Jose reviews

And Saam Das of Faded Glamour says that our Blindsided cover is “wonderfully stirring and a good omen for the forthcoming EP”. Click here for the full piece.

See you on the road. It’s going to be fun.
Luke Leighfield + Jose Vanders - Blindsided (teamABC’s Sunday Morning Remix)
I did a remix, completely had this almost finished about a month ago, but yeah! Just finished tweaking it, and it’s pretty much ready for your ears!
It’s a cover of a Bon Iver song, which is totally pretty in it’s own right (video HERE), but I’ve made it into a little sparkly pop song, as per usual really!
This is brilliant. Stef is my very talented buddy. If I were you, I’d check his blog, it’s pretty radical.
Yeah, this is fresh! Still time to get your remix competition entries in at lukeandjose.com/remix. You can listen to the entries so far here.
Skip to 1:20:07 to hear mine and Jose Vanders’ cover of ‘Blindsided’ by Bon Iver on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show. Thanks, Tom!
