Wye Oak covers Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” for A.V. Undercover 2014

I love the original (and I love Placebo’s take on it almost as much), and while I can’t say I’m crazy about Jenn Wasner’s voice (or her neck movements, or the faces she pulls as she sings, or the fact that their version really doesn’t go anywhere interesting), I do dig her distorted bass in the middle.

6-year-old Avery Molek pounds out Rush’s “Fly By Night”

Apparently this kid isn’t intimidated to try to put his spin on the work of some of the best rock drummers around. The last time we checked in on him, he had just released his interpretation of Alex Van Halen’s work on “Hot for Teacher.”
