Charleston, South Carolina musician Alex Collier records modern classical/church organ renditions of pop songs with The Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra and they released their album, King of Instruments, this past October which featured covers of Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Vampire Weekend, Usher, Coldplay, and others. The album was recorded in a church with Alex on organ anmd we've got two videos of them performing Frank Ocean's "Bad Religion," and Bon Iver's "Perth," which are making their premieres in this post. You can watch them below.

The Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra get their name from their affiliation with Jingle Punks, a company that matches independent musicians with TV producers and advertisers looking to license music.
