On the Beach 

Fans of Neil Young may recognize the title of French artist Joakim’s latest single, which is in fact a cover of the titular song from the Canadian singer/songwriter’s 1974 album. “On the Beach” takes on a completely electronic palette in Joakim’s hands, with the Parisian’s vocals ran through a robotic vocoder as patient layers of analog synths and bare-bones drum machine hits move the track along at a hypnotic pace. —Via xlr8r
