It's Christmasssss!!! Not like you guys needed telling but hey, why not grab an extra special little gift from the brothers Jarman aka The Cribs and Kate Nash. They've covered Wham!'s infamous "Last Christmas" for fans and you can grab yourselves the download up at the top. I'm going to go and eat some more cheese and drink some more wine. Happy holidays guys!
When I first saw this story circling around a few days ago I couldn't quite wrap my head around it. It's hard to deny Nardwuar has incredible interview skills and his research methods are unique; some of the things he finds/knows about the artists that he interviews is insane. N.E.R.D.'s Pharrell enjoyed his interview so much he rang Jay-Z and told him that he had to get an interview with Nardwuar whenever he visited town. That did happen once upon a time, and even though Jay-Z looked to be a little too high to fully respect the effort put in by the Human Serviette, it was still insane to see.
To the story in hand, Nardwuar is planning to release a collection titled Busy Doing Nothing and it'll feature new music from the likes of Franz Ferdinand & The Cribs. Two UK bands I'm eager to hear new material from. As well as them, party lover Andrew W.K. will be on the release and Kate Nash too. Nardwuar’s own band The Evaporators are also set to appear on the collection. It's set for release on the 6th of March via Mint Records
If you're unaware of who the heck this Nardwuar is take a look at the video after the jump in which he chats with Pharrell and Shay of N.E.R.D.
I love covers. I love Kate Nash. This is a win all around. Here we have Kate covering the 1984 classic (which fun fact: was released on Valentine's Day), "Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams. This fun flashback of a cover was recorded during Kate's session at the Triple J Studio for Live A Version.
