Saturday Matinee – Shovels & Rope, Richard & Linda Thompson, & Postmodern Jukebox

Shovels and Rope have a nice country sound – with dawgs. They’re a husband and wife team.

They remind me a little of Richard and Linda Thompson.

That song is one of my all-time favorites for unknown reasons, and we’ve posted at least one other version before.

On the other hand, these folks crack me up because they’re so talented and so spot on. Here’s another great hit from PostModern Jukebox.

 

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more pasta and butter.

Saturday Matinee – Postmodern Jukebox, Oh!Sharels & Molly Sue Gonzalez

Postmodern Jukebox (featuring The Tee-Tones) does Pitbull‘s & Keisha‘s “Timber” in doowop style, and we love it.

Couldn’t make it through the original version. Then we thought we’d look for some recent retro bands and found this.

Japanese girl group Oh!Sharels cover the Chords’ 1954 classic Sh-Boom.

Contrary to popular belief, doowop (aka R&B aka Rhythm & Blues) was not the only form of early rock and roll, so let’s kick it up with some Retrobilly.

Molly Sue Gonzalez (And The Mean Mean Men) “Bad Example” is just the thing to wrap up this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend folks, be back here tomorrow.
