a new band to look out for
so while skimming over digg last night i stumbled across a cover of outkast’s Hey ya. Now to say this cover is excellent is not enough.
Its stunning, its magnificent. Its totally changed the song for me, and in my opinion at least, its better than the original by miles. So here’s that video from You Tube.
The band is called Obadiah Parker and its very hard to pin down exactly what their style is. The best way to get a sense of it is just to listen.
Apart from the cover of Hey Ya there is also a splendid cover of idoteque by radiohead. Do yourself a favour and give them 10 minutes of your time, you won’t regret it.
Even though i really dislike the whole myspace thing, if you want to check out a few of the other songs they do and even read their blog, check out their myspace page. Thankfully it has the default formatting.
Ill be ordering the EP at the first oportunity.
