Cool Chord of the Week
Christopher gets shivers from a passing chord in Chris Juengel’s version of Elliott Smith’s “Say Yes.” Download it FREE here.
Lea DeLaria’s jazz take on the epic “Black Hole Sun” inspires Dave to suggest that a cappella groups cover the popular Soundgarden song. Paul Anka, the Vitamin String Quartet, the Tufts Amalgamates, N.A.M.B., and Alice pave the way for dramatic reinterpretations of the song.
Music from the Future
Christopher has a premonition that UO Mind the Gap might maybe release a new album that he calls a “pop music dream,” with lively takes on the Neon Trees’ “Animal,” Sara Bareilles’s “King of Anything,” and Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.”
Even if it’s a bit scattered in focus, the still-new Danish quintet Postyr’s debut release Postyr Project fascinates both Dave and Christopher, and spurs some pondering questions about avantgarde pop, the capabilities of the voice, and the future of a cappella.
