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!

"Someone Great" By LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem apparently broke up a couple of weeks ago. My favorite song of theirs is "Someone Great" from 2007's Sound of Silver- but the mix for the single cuts out about two and a half minutes from the album version- dont you hate when that happens? Luckily Youtube comes through with the full version of the song with an cool little fan video.

Songs from "The Odd Couple" by Gnarls Barkley

I think that "The Odd Couple", the second Gnarls Barkley album did not get nearly the same advertising push that the first one recieved, but then again, I don't think that most people really heard more than a couple songs off the first album besides "Crazy." "The Odd Couple" had a lot of great songs as well, and the songs were matched with great videos- here is the video to "I'm going on":

And here is a link to the "Who's Gonna Save my Soul" video, (imbedding was disabled)

"Who's Gonna Save my Soul" is especially cool- great acting, cool animation, and timely due to the fact that today is the day after Valentine's day- enjoy!

"Get Me" by Dinosaur Jr.

BB6 music's album of the week is "Where you Been" by Dinosaur Jr. I was a big fan of the band back when this album came out- and the song "Get Me" was the high point of the album for me. I just checked out Youtube and there is a video for the song that I had never seen before- ain't Youtube sweet??
