We’ve all heard and likely loved Gnarls Barkley’s timeless Crazy, a billion times over in past years. It’s Cee-Lo’s best work ever, in my opinion, with the ever brilliant Danger Mouse, to boot. But I bet you’ve never heard it this way. British producer Krafty Kuts drops a cover of the classic, which he calls Going Crazy, and its a killer track, with plenty of funky, glitchy elements and some gratifying break beats and wonky bass. It’s a gloriously dizzying re-imagining.

Apparently, Thanksgiving in America means everyone in the world should do awesome covers and remixes for us to enjoy. Another great cover to come out of the past day or so is this one by Ella Eyre, who just released her debut solo song ” target=”_blank”>Deeper last week after grabbing our hearts touring and singing with Rudimental. Ella offered up her version of the Gnarls Barkley hit Going On. Of course, she covers is fantastically. The horns, the percussion, the powerful soul of the track… it’s all a perfect fit for Ella Eyre.

If ya haven’t heard, Goodie Mob is reuniting for a brand new album (yes, Cee-Lo included)! The new album, Age Against the Machine, will be out on August 27. Har har. Get the title? Ha. The new banging single Special Education features Janelle Monáe! It’s a super catchy track and it’s great to hear Cee-Lo on spoken word again. The hard hitting bass heavy electric hip hop track is undoubtedly dope.

OFFICIAL VID: Slaughterhouse – My Life ft Cee Lo Green

June 20, 2012

LOLOLOL. The intro on this is pretty funny tongue in cheek stuff. It pokes fun at rich celebrity rappers and stars Eminem himself. The song is a catchy mainstream rap and hip hop tune, as expected. This will certainly be all over the radiowaves in a short while. Personally, I was much more entertained by the intro to the video than the very decent song.

La Blogotheque catchup

February 16, 2012

I’ve been behind on checking out some of my favorite music session channels on youtube. So, naturally, I’m behind on some A Take Away Show sessions from La Blogotheque. I’ll do a quick catchup on a few of these right now. As always, the A Take Away Show series performances are breathtakingly beautiful. Love them. I’ll quickly jot these down. 

First, The Twilight Sad. Ahhh… that accent and that music…. I would swoon if I were there. I would. For sure. They performed there gorgeous songs Sick and Alphabet on a sidewalk:

Next, Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit gave a raw performance of their songs In The Morning and Sailor:

Lastly, I’m not always a big fan of Cee Lo Green, but I must concede the man has some major talent and genius (not always used to full potential). Danger Mouse knew what he was doing when he collaborated with Cee Lo as Gnarls Barkley. Here’s Cee Lo’s A Take Away Show where he performed acoustic renditions of F*ck You and Wild Flower:
