VOTD: Doing ‘Otis’ better than Kanye

Watch Peter Bjorn and John successfully ‘Try a Little Tenderness.’

Big success across time periods here. Swedish act Peter Bjorn and John’s cover of “Try a Little Tenderness” somehow makes me think that Otis Redding’s being covered by an energetic, ’50s doo-wop singer like Frankie Valli, but one with solid guitar chops. And nice dance moves to boot.

I think Peter Morén summed it up best, however, before the performance: “There’s a lot of emotion, y’know?”



And it looks like The A.V. Club readers rightfully decided to reward the band for commendably performing such an intimidating song. They’re right up there near the top, just behind They Might Be Giants’ unforgettable, office-assisted version of Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping.”

G.O.O.D. Music — Cruel Summer


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music crew have finally dropped their long-awaited compilation album, Cruel Summer. It has its moments, but overall falls short of the high expectations that come with any Kanye project.

Kanye West — Yeezus

The skills match the ego.


Hip Hop/Rap

Zach Hale
Try as you might, but there’s no escaping Kanye West. Turn on the TV, radio, computer — hell, take a stroll downtown and you might see his mug projected on the side of a building. It’s an undeniable fact of life in 2013: Kanye West is bigger than Buddha, Krishna and The Beatles (today, anyway) and he’ll be the first to let you know about it.

Takeoff Eyeslow — The Prescription


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
Before Kanye West went off on his screaming, no-wave punk nonsense, he was the only honest mainstream rapper, mixing high-quality, production with heart-wrenching lyrics exploring the more truthful aspects of relationships.
