Ship To Wreck

Here’s a nice cover of Florence And The Machine’s Ship To Wreck from Rhodes, at play in the Radio 1 Live Lounge:

Soulful stuff. With a cello, too. Cello is always good.
Just a shame about his wickedly racist ancestry.

Hysteria

If I didn’t play the violin, I would want to play the cello. Cellos sound great. So when I spotted this earlier on StephanieBe’s blog, I simply had to share it on here because it’s an excellent cover of an excellent song, done… er… excellently.
On cellos.

So. Much. Energy.

As Ms Be points out, it’s worth clicking the SETTINGS > QUALITY and banging it up as high as your bandwidth will allow, if only for the better sound.

2CELLOS are Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser and have an album out, which includes their covers of Thunderstruck and Radiohead’s Street Spirit (Fade Out) which is very special.
Oh, and fun fact: this video was filmed at a real mental hospital in Pula, Croatia.
