It’s no Floppotron 3.0, but DJthefirst’s self-playing electromechanical dulcimer has got some serious soul. Put your headphones on, crank up the volume, hit play, and enjoy this soothing rendition of the Kate Bush track Running up That Hill (A Deal with God).
We’ve previously enjoyed the talents of Ted Yoder when he performed a great Tears for Fears cover. As good as his remakes are, his originals are even better. Sit back, crank up your headphones, and enjoy this enveloping track performed on hammered dulcimer, marimba, drums, violin, and bass guitar. From the album Shadowlight.
The dulcimer usually is associated with the kind of music you’d hear at a renaissance festival. But musician Sam Edelston believes the stringed instrument is “among the world’s coolest.” Listen up as he plays some truly rockin’ cover versions from the Ramones, Black Sabbath, and David Bowie.
