postmodern

cam introduced me to scott bradlee & postmodern jukebox the other day, which he discovered via a kotaku post featuring the pokemon theme song as "an r&b slow jam" (mmm, no).

it wasn't exactly love at first sight, but some of those covers just dig their way into your head and you find yourself marveling that something that normally sounds like this can suddenly sound like THAT. for the love of all that is holy, how i could find myself thinking, "yes. yes. i must listen to 'timber' and 'we can't stop'"? but "translated" into doo wop, those songs are actually listenable.

plus the 60s girl group version of ellie goulding's "burn" is fabulous.

and i would buy an album of puddles' lorde covers. i would also pay for another copy for cam.
