Beats Sings Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out

It’s been ages, I know, and I kept meaning to post this song for Beats but it seems every time I’d get around to it the site would go down. Anyways, here is one fine A Capella song from the Petra Haden’s home-recorded A Capella cover of The Who’s album, ‘The Who Sell Out’. Phew. Ya got that? Just listen, it’s pretty amazing.

Beats: M83’s Run Into Flowers

Another obscure indie band, another set of great patterns. This one reminds me of The Chemical Brothers “Alive Alone” in that bittersweet, end-of-summer kind of way.

Beats versus We versus The Shark

The patterns on this one are just as crazy as the song. There’s something about We Versus the Shark that just gets in my head. I tap out the drum beats constantly at work, to the annoyance of everyone around me. I just can’t stop it sometimes and I’m happy that it’s just as infectious in Beats.

Beats: Pilot Scott Tracy’s Angel of Death

I’ll just say that this song in particular is awesomely 80’s, what I’d call synth-rock, and let you decide if you want to check it out. A little more from the band’s own record label bio: “Pilot Scott Tracy is a brainchild of Scott and Tracy Cox-Stanton, formerly of the Causey Way. It is a flight of fantasy based on the good old days of air travel when stewardesses coddled you with free beverages and fluffed pillows. Their music, described by one critic as “aggressively homo,” is sometimes raw, sometimes pretty, sometimes serious, sometimes silly, a delicious collision of early punk and new wave.”

Beats is a Sweet Transvestite

You seem like you’re pretty… groovy. So I thought this week I’d go a little bit farther out (too far?) across my musical landscape and share Sweet Transvestite from The Rocky Horror Picture Show as performed by the fantastic Tim Curry. Try it on Extreme for some really good patterns and to hear one of the longest delayed syllables in the history of the spoken word.
