My New Favourite Musician

Jonathan Coulton was linked today on Boing Boing. If you haven’t already clicked over there and listened to his blues-pop cover of Baby Got Back, you’re missing out on a treat. Also worth listening: “Shop Vac”, a self-described piece of “funny tragic suburban angst power pop ennui”. (If you liked that cover of Baby Got Back, you might also like Nina Gordon’s (of Veruca Salt fame) acoustic guitar cover of N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton. Warning, contains lots of bad language that would undoubtedly horrify your parents.)
