DOWNLOAD: tUnE-YarDs - I Really Taught Me To Watusi (KATW cover) (MP3)

tUnE-YarDs @ Bowery Ballroom (more)
Tune Yards
Katrina and the Waves

"Every spring, as the sun starts to shine, DJs reach for the song "Walking on Sunshine." And since its release 25 years ago this week, just about everyone associated with the song has lived quite well off its success. It was recorded by Katrina Leskanich, and when people used to ask her what she did for a living, she'd say, "I'm a singer in Katrina and the Waves. Oh, never heard of it? You know, 'Walking on Sunshine'?"" [NPR]
When I first heard "I Really Taught Me To Watusi" by Katrina & the Waves....

I Really Taught Me To Watusi by Katrina & the Waves (the original)

... while picking songs for this BrooklynVegan Katrina & the Waves covers EP project, I immediately thought of tUnE-YarDs, and when tUnE-YarDs heard the song she immediately said yes to participating. Check out her somewhat lo-fi take on the track for free above. It's track #4 on the above-pictured, currently-5-song EP.

This means so far we have:

1. Sam Amidon - Walking on Sunshine
2. Deer Tick - Sun Street
3. ????
4. tUnE-YarDs - I Really Taught Me To Watusi
5. ????
Stay tuned for the rest soon! tUnE-YarDs dates below...

I would love to see Napalm Death or Carcass on this EP comp. There has to be a death metal version of the Wlaking On Sunshine song some where.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

you dave haters can go fuck yourselves. bonnaroo 2010 was 4 of the best days of my life. the DMB and JayZ headliners at the main stage were two of the best shows I've ever seen, musically and production speaking. 2011 'roo is going to be amazing. Phish headlining?

they also played at a place called Tramps in april '99 losers. with qotsa. where were you? you guys sound pretty angry? go listen to something hip. whatever the fuck you think that is. why does james iha need to be in the band for them to be good? that makes no sense. so the band changed lineups. oh well.
