My Favorite Things of the Week

Bob's Burgers is one of my favorite shows on TV, it's unexpected collaborations with some of my favorite musicians makes it even better. The National has been a constant presence on the show, but Fiona Apple has now lent her voice for this year's Halloween episode! There have already been Bob's Burgers albums released, so when we inevitably get the next edition, check it out on my Upcoming Releases page!

Omni has a sound characterized by jangly, precise guitar work. They will be releasing their third album, Networker, next month. They've previously released two songs from the records and released their latest, "Courtesy Call," this week.

A lot of covers make some sort of sense, artists cover other musicians that have inspired their sound in some evident way, or they cover contemporaries. Others seem to come out of nowhere, like (Sandy) Alex G's recent cover of Shania Twain's "You're Still the One."

Aldous Harding's videos find a way to be both strange and straightforward at the same time. Her latest video, for "Zoo Eyes," is no different, featuring the singer lip syncing her lyrics, but in a variety of outlandish costumes and epic makeup.

Jack Peñate is a British musician who released his most recent album, Everything Is New, back in 2009. Last week, he announced his first album in over a decade, After You. He's released two songs and videos for the album, "Prayer" and "Murder." The album will be released on November 29.
