WEEKENDS ARE FOR SINGLES featuring a Santigold cover, and lots of weird, experimental shit for your time off!

Like Great Songs?  Like Covers?  Go here!

Today: Not new, but good.  Temper’s cover of Santigold’s Disparate Youth. I’m starting with a straightforward pop hit before descending deep into some cool, experimental stuff…

Sxip Shirey (pronounced “Skip”) makes music using found objects. In other words, he’s from Brooklyn. But don’t dismiss his new album as hipster bullshit. It’s a bit long, but there are many gems in this album of mostly instrumental tracks. Here’s the teaser he’s offering on Soundcloud. It’s hard to call it a “single” because it’s so unusual, but I hope you’ll like it…

And why don’t we keep the weirdness running with the lead single from Damaged Bug (a solo project by a member of the Oh Sees)…

So we started with a cover to get your ears warmed up. Now, another cover. Only this one isn’t much like the original, by Iggy and the Stooges. Here’s Glassio’s cover of Search and Destroy…

That cover was the perfect segue into “So Hot” by The Gods Themselves. We’ll end this here, on a dance note. Cool and hot.
