You know the drill, baby.
[MP3] Ron Burgandy & The Channel 4 News Team – Afternoon Delight
I cannot possibly make any commentary to do any justice, what-so-ever, to this incredible cover.
[MP3] Josh Ritter – Blame It On The Tetons
Anyone who knows about the last Modest Mouse album, probably is familiar with this song. I was really excited when I got a free copy of the Thin Blue Flame single only to see the B-Side be a Modest Mouse cover! I’m sure Brian Deck had some influence on Ritter’s song selection, but I am really glad he did. Great cover of my favorite band by one of my favorite solo artists.
[MP3] James Blunt – Where Is My Mind?
I’m normally not a James Blunt fan. Sure, I liked his voice and songs when I had first heard them but like a good piece of fruit.. It eventually spoiled. However, for 4:36 of great covering abilities I momentarily forgot my dislike for Mr. Blunt. It’s a pretty good cover and his voice does a pretty decent job of emulating the uniqueness of the Pixies.
I just remembered how much I love the Pixies. Excuse me while I go listen to Doolittle a few dozen times. I’m totally serial, guys.
