Sluka showcases the ukulele with “Number One”

The final addition for the perfect Summer playlist will be “Number One” by Sluka. Forget the fact that their band name is uber-creative, but it’s the first track that’s been posted to finally include a ukulele. Yes, the ukulele is essential to any Summer jam that really wants to make it’s way to the radio waves. It’s the ultimate instrument to insinuate relaxation. Not only the up-strumming from the chords being played, but also the string-plucking that helps drive the good vibes as far as the sound waves can go.

Zachary Clowes brings an acoustic cover of Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle”

https://soundcloud.com/zacharyclowes/the-middle

Many people think covers are usually worthless, to just let the original stand without anyone butchering it. We say eff that; let us enjoy our favorite songs by doing our own sweet renditions of them, interpret them as we please. If it wasn’t for covers, would we have some of the sickest tracks known to man right now? Van Halen covered The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me”, Jimi Hendrix covered Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” and if you dare to tell us that his cover sucked, take a minute to reevaluate what you think good music really is. Yes, it’s all opinion-base but holy cow where is your head. Let’s leave it right here and just introduce you to Zachary Clowes and his interpretation of “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World”

Nico Eno sings a sweet rendition of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box”

 

Nirvana rocks harder than most but they can also bring it when they go unplugged. One track we’ve always wanted to listen to in slower, softer tone was “Heart-Shaped Box” and we finally got it! Nico Eno brings his vocal prowess to sing and sing it beautifully over a sweet acoustic melody. Keeping it as simple as possible to keep it only about the track and his voice. We still get the rawness that made this track unique when you feel the pain in Nico’s voice as well. The words seem to speak to him as it does to all of us. We are grateful for rugged unplugged touch and we hope Paris doesn’t keep Nico Eno all for themselves. Listen to Nico Eno’s rendition of “Heart-Shaped Box‘ and let us know what you think about this cover.
