Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

This song has been haunting me for a couple of weeks now, ever since Spotify snuck it into my discover weekly queue...

Oh, I do like that H3TJA. Thanks!

It sounds great, but if you’re going to do a cover of an 80s classic at least get the words right.

Song I'm vibing to this week:

The Regrettes - Monday

That new Radiohead is so good. I love when they go in a more jazz direction. Their slow stuff is typically my favorite.

Thank YOU for pointing me to THIS. Why didn’t I see this on NPR already?

One more thing…

He's amazing. Anyway Imma let you finish but his greatest track of all time is the one that he incorrectly calls Hyrule Temple - (SSB: Melee), but which true old gamers will know as the dungeon theme from Zelda 2. I'd post it here but I posted it 10-15 pages ago

edit: rewatching it, I noticed there's a clock in the shot from which one can deduce that he laid down all those tracks pretty much back to back, over a half hour or so. What a beast!

In closing, don't miss his cover of pure imagination (i.e. the Gene Wilder Willy Wonka song)

A follow up to their debut song, Chaise Lounge:

Wet Leg - Wet Dream

Not really a band per se, but Dovydas is a Lithuanian transplant to the U.S. who primarily runs a YouTube channel and plays small venues - both private and public - around Sarasota, Florida. His main niche is taking requests, quickly looking up chords and/or a music video, and knocking spontaneous covers of those songs completely out of the park.

Sometimes he sings, sometimes he gets a crowd member to sing, sometimes he just goes instrumental. Rock, blues, R&B, Dance, Country… doesn’t matter - it’s always great and his guitar solo improvisation is insane. The man has some insane talent.

Just a few of my favorites, but this doesn’t even scratch the surface:

This song has way too many thumbs down on YouTube. Goddamn bigots.

Have you seen them interviewed yet?

This song performance is my new favorite thing.

I started Sable but haven't got too far into it. No time!

First new Tears For Fears in 17 years.

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. Thank you for posting this.

Amazing. Love it.

Gary Numan's album released earlier this year is themed around Earth's anger and despair at the things we have done to it. This song is kind of the flag-bearer for that anguish. Quite moving.

Huge fan of this album and the video's from it are all worth watching!

Yeah, that's two in a row that really knocked it out of the park for him.

This my jam. I wish it had a Travis Barker drum jam at the end.

Royale & the Serpent is another one recently recommended to me that I just got around to checking out and am enjoying

After the Isbell cover discussion a few pages back, he drops a whole album of covers of Georgia musicians and I love this version of REM's Driver 8:

Oh cool. I’ll be listening to that at work tonight.
