Recently I stumbled upon this and am really impressed.
Moon Duo does Black Sabbath's 'Planet Caravan':
Not crazy about the tune--but I damn sure want that guitar.
I hear you. As for the tune itself, what Johnny Cash did worked better for me.
Marilyn Manson has his musical style/identify, and many fans...he broke through and found success in the music business, which very few can do.
But still, IMO Johnny Cash belongs on the pantheon of great American singers, and Marilyn Manson does not.
Nice, very nice.
P.S. This is beyond nice.
I'm not a big Miley Cyrus fan. Her strong voice doesn't always work for me, though now & then she hits one over the wall. Her Hall & Oates cover would've been better if the backing group didn't default to a generic rock beat (just my 2 cents).
This is my favorite Hall & Oates cover: Pomplamoose & Natalie Dawn covering "You Make My Dreams." Natalie is hardly an R&B shouter, but somehow her delicate voice satisfies here. The star is the instrumental combo, which brings out even more of the funk that's always present there in Hall & Oates tunes.
I like the cover because Miley Cyrus here does something I don't hear enough in Rock & Roll these these days: the growly vocals. Pat Benetar had that and some underground Metal bands were into that too. Clean and smooth vocals are fine but sometimes you want to hear more than that. There is a rawness to her voice I appreciate.
These kids do a great job on Sarah Jarosz' song. Kind of nice and peaceful for another strange day. Blasting van Halen will start at cocktail hour.
My favorite cover of Dancing in the Street...RIP Eddie
I can agree with that. That Johnny did with NIN's "Hurt", well, that's crazy. After hearing it even T.Reznor said that this song isn't his any longer.
That's so true. The song will never sound the same to me after hearing his version. That's real greatness--hijacking a great tune w/pure talent & feeling.
One for Van Halen.
This one seems apropos....
Holly Cole "I Can See Clearly Now"
Yet another excellent cover from Scary Pockets. I love this tune & its beautiful chorus; and especially like Monica Martin's soft, hesitant singing style (she has a small voice, but it's so expressive).
Oh, a KEXP session with a mandolin. That reminds me.
Fuck, this is good! How did I never hear of this group? The mandolin player really has a golden voice.
