Filmmaker and musician Tyler Russo presents a depressing reminder of the more mundane and repetitive nature of life in this vocoder saturated video clip he created for Adult Swim. If nothing else, it’ll provide some motivation for you to change things up. Listen to the full song here.

It’s been a while since we checked in with dancer Marquese Scott, and it’s good to know that he’s still got all the moves. In this clip for Ed “Gusto” Greene & Scott Trent’s modern disco track, his crisp and clean choreography is further accentuated with the addition of colorful moving lines. Download the track here.
Go back to the 80s with musician Mario Mathy, aka Belgium’s “King of Synths,” as he jams out on his ridiculous rack of keyboards which would require Doc Ock’s tentacles to play at the same time. From his white outfit, to his pink headband, to his Keytar, the video is a joy to watch. Need more Mario? You’re welcome.
We can feel it all over. One of the funkiest songs ever written has got to be Stevie Wonder’s Sir Duke. Recently, the members of the the artist collective known as Apartment Sessions turned in a rousing, appropriately brass-heavy performance of the track on NYC’s J Train, lead off by the soulful lead vocals of Aneesa Folds.
If there was ever a song that suited itself perfectly to the marimba, we’re going to say it’s this one. Sit back and enjoy this delightful cover version of the Tears for Fears track Everybody Wants to Rule the World, performed by Michael Charles Smith and Giorgia Capobianco.
Musician Feng E might only be 12 years old at the time of this post, but he continues to wow us with his talent. Here, he performs a fingerstyle cover of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb with all of the nuance and depth that you’d expect from someone with many more years of experience.
You know, it’s basically impossible to listen to a Pomplamoose performance without it bringing a smile to your face. We were certainly grinning here as we listened to their bright and cheerful cover of Mr. Blue Sky that both nods to Electric Light Orchestra, and makes it their own.
Each year, Tom BetGeorge of Magical Light Shows tricks out the front of his Tracy, California house with tons of lights to celebrate Halloween, continually stepping up the show to outdo himself. For 2019, we get Ray Parker Jr’s Ghostbusters theme, accompanied by a brilliant array of color, and singing pumpkin animations.
Wonderfully enigmatic musicians The Flaming Lips teamed up with the Colorado Symphony and conductor André de Ridder to re-record their 1999 album The Soft Bulletin with a full orchestra. Race for the Prize gives us a preview of the live album, which drops 11/29/19.
(PG-13: Language) During their recent tour dates in Brazil, Weezer performed a great cover of Nirvana’s 1991 track Lithium. It’s a great tribute to a fellow band who achieved fame in the 1990s, but with a very different outcome. On a related note, we came across this little gem while researching this story.
