Shake Some Action by the Flaming Groovies

  • I just heard the original version of this song, and it was a real fun listen- I have heard a few covers of it over the years, by the Cracker and The Farm, and a load of other bands. But the original is probably the best- great guitar work. Enjoy! (〃⌒▽⌒)八(〃⌒▽⌒〃)八(⌒▽⌒〃)

Anna Calvi does Wolf Like me by TV on the Radio

I really enjoy artists that cover a song and put a twist on the original. In this clip, Anna Calvi does a great cover of "Wolf Like Me" from TV on the Radio- slows it down, and treats it almost like a dirge!

Pete and the Pirates- Half Moon Street

I love the new album from Pete and the Pirates, lots of great songs. My favorite is probably "Half Moon Street" - here is a great subdued accoustic performance of the song, followed by a short interview.


Here is another song from the new album, "Come to the Bar", love the distorted piano on this one (and the sushi):

Tame Impala + Stevie Wonder Mashup :- "Remember Me/Superstition"

Tame Impala is a great psychedelic rock band from Australia- I heard about them listening to the Australian indie/alternarock station Triple J a long time ago- and like them a lot. This epic mash up takes Tame Impala's cover of Blue Boy's "Remember Me" and mashed it up with the classic Stevie Wonder track "Superstition" and kicks the song up to "psychedelic safari" levels! I miss the horns from Superstition though, some times you can't improve too much on perfection I guess!
