Marika Hackman - Lithium

Marika Hackman is an unbearably young British singer-songwriter with a free EP of covers currently available on her personal website. This Nirvana cover is so wrong, and won't appeal to original fans, but it is well done and very much of the present (read: there are many artists out there who sound just like her. But she's achieved what she's sought to achieve.). Her EP also features a nicely done cover of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky," and might appeal to fans of Sarah Blasko or Emiliana Torrini.

Also, she's yet to become well-known in the U.S. and she's already hawking Burberry shit in the UK.
