Whoa, This is… Wow

My friend Bryce just e-mailed me and brought this to my attention:

A cool jazz tribute to Gnarls Barkley. Wow. It was released yesterday. I can’t get the sound samples to play on my computer, though, so I’m only assuming it’s really weird, if not terrible.

He says it so much better than I ever could:

Is this necessary? I mean, really? Anyway, if you need me I will be cramming staples into my ear canal with a Sharpie.

To leave things on a good note, Bryce is also the bassist in this week’s Band of the Week, the Hungry Pines, who I saw at the High Dive about a week ago. They’re exceptional (and not just because Bryce is a friend of mine, they really are good). I’ll make a whole other post about why they’re awesome, though. I don’t want their greatness to be tainted by this… weirdness.

I really want these sound clips to work. I must hear this. I don’t really know why, but I must.

I've made it through the version of "crazy" on that disc, and it sounded essentially like 1980s muzak combined with a touch of G.E. Smith and the Saturday Night Live Band.
