Link to video : The Pyramid Song (Radiohead Cover)
October #UnderCover artist is Wolf Gang. (London) Alternative/Indie/Symphonic
Although on July 2015 the band posted their official end on their Facebook page, this haunting cover of Pyramid Song by Radiohead lives on. Accompanied by the captivating video from the 1948 film “The Red Shoes”, it remains as one of the most brilliant covers I’ve ran across even though the recording is a little rough (a bedroom recording).
Max McElligott’s striking vocals and compelling piano liberties, as well as an ethereal choir take the song to another level of desperation and sadness.

September #UnderCover artist is Blues rock phenom Jordan Cook.
Pick your jaw up off the floor after feasting on this KEXP live taping of his cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”.
Cook and his band are currently out on tour after internet silence for well over a year. ‘Wolfpack’ fans have been salivating since the pre-tour release of the track, “Wanna Don’t Wanna”. Here’s hoping that therir first official full length release is on the horizon.

Texas Rockers Blacktop Mojo steal the spotlight with this cover of Aerosmith classic , “Dream On”. A monster of a song and vocal, but they nail it, with Matt James going toe to toe with Steven Tyler’s primal wails and screams. This cover led me to the band’s website and music – – – which is best described as a fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal that falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Be sure to check out their album “Burn the Ships” / March 2017 on Cuhmon Records.

Worth pulling out and dusting off for my #Undercover segment this month .
Korn took on iconic Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.” There have been some haters on this one, but I have to say I enjoyed their expanded interpretation.
