Cover, Videos | Mikey Bolts does “The Monster” in Family Guy Voices

Posted by on February 6, 2014

Listen, I’m no Family Guy groupie, nor have I ever heard of this dude Mikey Bolts until my buddy introduced him to me over the weekend, but he has some serious talent.  If you breathe Oxygen, you should be able to recognize at least two of these voices.  Do I think it’s kind of strange how his facial expressions look eerily like the cartoons themselves?  Yes, without a doubt.  Do I wish I could pull off those impersonations?  Yes, without a doubt.  Any way you cut it, this Bolts kid has skills.  Check out his YouTube channel for more Family Guy covers.

Cover, Mashups, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday – Red Hot Bruno Peppers

Posted by on January 29, 2014

Timeflies throw it back, but also keep it current with a mashup cover of Scar Tissue x Grenade.  After a recent announcement that the RHCP would be added to the likes of Bruno Mars and whatever other Super Bowl surprises, this could be a realistic preview of what’s to come Sunday night. Taking one of the best songs of the best decade, the 90′s, and lacing it with Bruno Mars’ 2010 hit, this is certainly a unique release for Cal and Rez.  On top of indulging in this Tuesday release, grab an earful of Laidback Luke’s remix of Timeflies recent single, “All The Way”, below.

Cover, Indie, Pop | Timeflies Tuesday – Say Something

Posted by on January 15, 2014

With what I’m expecting to be a banger of a single coming next week, Timeflies deliver yet another slow jam.  This week’s installment, a cover of A Great Big World’s, “Say Something”.  Like the New York made indie pop/rock duo, A Great Big World, Cal and Rez tackle this mellow piano ballad, but as always, they add an extra pinch of seasoning.  Enjoy this one before they turn up next week with their brand new single, “All The Way”.

Cover, Pop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: Let Her Go

Posted by on December 17, 2013

Sometimes Timeflies Tuesday is a new joint you can ride to. Sometimes it’s a tranquil track you can make babies (or non babies) to.  Sometimes it’s both. This week Cal and Rez take on Passenger’s 2012 hit, “Let Her Go”. I’m not going to come out and say Cal has the voice of Passenger’s front man, Mike Rosenberg, but they do put one hell of a spin on this international chart topper.

Cover, Hip-Hop, Rap | Kid Slim & K.Weezy – Tour Van Jams

Posted by on November 2, 2013

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see Kid Slim open up for Fresh New Tracks legend, SoMo. To put my experience lightly, it was cathartic. Kid Slim was an artist who I had contact with early in his career when his music was not blog-ready. To see his progression is one of the most fabulous things I’ve experienced. After I told him his music was not good enough to be on our site, I now tell you all that his music is quite good enough to be on this site. His latest mixtape, Freshman 15, was phenomenal, and his stage presence in undeniable.

One of my favorite segments from the show was when he and his DJ/producer K.Weezy, switched it up a little and hit the fans with a cover of “Best I Ever Had.” The girls, and myself, went crazy. K. Weezy did a phenomenal job on the strings and Kid Slim surprised everyone with a voice I would never have expected from the 6 foot 8 man. We have been blessed with a full version of their impromptu jam on last weeks edition of “Tour Van Jams,” which can be found above. If you’re in the mood for a couple of laughs, check out the cover of “I Like Big Butts” below. Kid Sim has come a long way, and he’s going to go a lot farther, so hop on while you can!
