This new Weezer cover that surfaced today is a must share. I love Toto’s epic 80s anthem Africa, cheesy or not, and apparently, fans have been clamoring at Weezer to cover it. And now they have! I was fortunate enough to catch Rivers Cuomo doing a solo show just a few weeks ago at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. He did a flurry of covers, but it would’ve been sweet to hear this Africa cover live, too. You can stream/download Weezer’s rendition, here.

SALES released their debut self titled EP yesterday, and they’re here to charm us immensely with EP track and new single Getting It On. Like much of the Florida duo’s other music that I’ve shared so far, Getting It On is a mellow yet resounding song, carrying much dreamy minimalism and endearing earthiness. The EP closes out with a haunting remix of their song Toto by producer XXYYXX, which you can stream below.
