I’ve always thought of Creep as being a very male song, which probably says more about me than it does about Radiohead.
But Haley Reinhart’s vocals on this vintage Postmodern Jukebox cover provide an incredibly effective reminder that everyone is a weirdo and none of us belong here.
If Prince had sung The Blues, his version of Purple Rain still wouldn’t have sounded anything at all like this version, which is brought to you by singer, Miche Braden with Scott Bradlee of Postmodern Jukebox on piano.
Postmodern Jukebox is an interesting band. This rotating musical collective was founded by Scott Bradlee in 2011 and specialises in reworking modern songs in vintage styles.
Japanese band, Babymetal has to be seen to be believed. The band describes their style as “kawaii metal” or “cute metal” and combines some pretty decent metal instrumentation with the sort of squeaky-voiced melodies that you would normally associate with Japanese pop music. You can see what I mean here.
When Postmodern Jukebox takes a Babymetal song and reinterprets it as a 1920s jazz number, the results are nothing short of incredible.
