Nice cover of Java on that LP too:

There’s a nice edit on this on a Moton release. The same one that has their instrumental Born This Way

Will from Eccentrics Disco made me aware of this one, 'tis very lush

90s remix of a Bollywood soundtrack cover of the beatles “and i love her”

Slow Club did an entire album of covers of songs by acts such as Bob Dylan, Echo & The Bunnyman, Arthur Russell, Pulp, Jamie T, Neil Young and more called “I Swam Out To Greet You” - it’s excellent. Vinyl only though - no digital or streaming, it came out in 2015.
