For anyone who has ever tried to sing along with Barry Gibb in "Stayin' Alive", help is here. Capital Cities takes the classic Bee Gees song, slows it down, and eliminates that daunting falsetto we all think we can hit. Their electronic style brings in a fresh new take on the 1977 hit song and don't worry, the trumpet that we hear quite frequently in Capital Cities' songs in there as well.
After throwing down at Irving Plaza last night, LA synth-pop kings Capital Cities have delivered a groovy cover of Bee Gees’ smash “Stayin’ Alive”. Keeping the disco element perfectly intact, a more lush environment is so delicately placed on top. Listen and download below.
Well, covering old classics has always been something that bands like to to. No matter if young bands cover the songs by their idols or well-known bands do covers for other reasons. In fact, covers don't have to be good. Often they are not at all, since they seem like cheap versions of great songs.

Two retro covers in one day ? Don't mind if we do. The second comes courtesy of rising synth-pop stars Capital Cities and their take on the Bee Gees' disco classic, "Stayin' Alive." The L.A. duo's electronic version is cool and smooth, the exact kind of thing you'd play with the windows on a night-time ride through Miami. Stream it below.

Filed under: News , Exclusive , The Hit List , Music Appreciation PA The sea has long been a source of inspiration for poets and musicians. From Samuel Taylor Coleridge's lyrical ballad, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" to Iron Maiden 's metal ballad "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," every musical genre and permutation of the art form has been entranced by the romance, the adventures and the misadventures that can happen when a [...]
It's always hard for me to review the Strokes because I'm conscious of being far from objective when it comes to them and that, to counteract my innate subjectivity, I tend to become far too critical. I openly admit to putting them on a pedestal that is so high that even Kanye West's ego wouldn't [...] The post The Strokes' 'Comedown Machine' reviewed appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
Filed under: News AP Photo WASHINGTON (AP) - A popular tune by Simon and Garfunkel written after John F. Kennedy's assassination and Chubby Checker 's 1960s dance hit "The Twist" will be among 25 recordings selected for preservation at the Library of Congress. These are just a few sounds of the 20th century being added to the National Recording Registry on Thursday for long-term preservation due to their cultural, artistic and historic importance. [...]

Linus of "Peanuts" once said, "There's no heavier burden than a great potential." Linus of Hollywood's certainly fulfilled his - check out these covers and hear for yourself.
Of course, Say Anything has "In Your Eyes", Goodfellas has "Layla", Apocalypse Now has "The End", Fight Club has "Where Is Your Mind", but a cover song in a movie is just different. A cover song in a movie elevates the drama - ascribing all kinds of meaning and sentiment to the music being played. All of a sudden this song that we're pretty sure we've heard before is chewing the scenery and the actors fade into the background. When the director has two characters listen to Sonic Youth cover The Carpenters, or opens his film with a dusty acoustic [...]
Say what you want about the Bee Gees and their falsettos and their disco success. They were among the ’60s and ’70s most adept songwriters, authors of more than their share of classics. Here are the Three Best Bee Gees Songs from the ’60s. 3. “Words” Like “To Love Somebody,” this song was written at the request of Robert Stigwood for another artist: Cliff Richard . When Richard took too long to get it done, the band recorded and released it in October 1967. A simple tune sung by Barry, it’s a magnificent ballad [...]
An Escape Plan have released the 'Living Together' EP on Friday 18th January. The release is to coincide with the launch of the new IKEA campaign for 2013 which the lead track "Living Together" will soundtrack. This was originally written by The Bee Gees and released in 1979 on 'Spirits Have Flown' . An Escape Plan's bitterly evocative version of the track was recorded at the scenic and historic Delapre Abbey in Northampton during the Christmas period, reflecting the haze of winter with a clear sobriety [...]
Danzig-S/T There is an unforgivable amount of kindly, sickly anemic man rock today, right now! These guys gather in some art space downtown somewhere and let loose on their modified banjos and sitars and sing about what it was like to have once been loved. It's disgusting, it's everywhere and as time goes on the thinner these men become. When did it become the dream of young boys to become terry cloth? A gentle elixir for mouth sores and cankers? In 19782s movie adaptation of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band [...]
Another podcast from the South Coast, as I am down in Brighton again this weekend, visiting my parents. My wee brother happens to be over visiting from the States as well, so we went to see Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday, which was rather fun, despite the rain. Tonight there will be roast pork and gins and tonic, and then tomorrow we will walk into Brighton to see how good a job our distributors are doing at getting Song, by Toad Records releases into the music shops around these parts. It feels a bit sneaky, checking up on [...]
Above is a trailer for a documentary by Adam Stafford, a gentleman you may know as the latest signing to Song, by Toad Records. The documentary is about the Redding Pit mining disaster, which happened in 1923, near Falkirk. The actual making of the film has been funded, and Adam is now looking to raise £1200 via Kickstarter for distribution, festival submissions and so on and so forth - assistance to actually get the film out there, basically. It looks a tad on the harrowing side, but a hugely worthwhile project, so I thought I should [...]

TYR ("sound's like fire") was one of many submissions buried in the Bwomp Beats inbox since Christmas, which, lucky for you, has been dug up. Originally hailing from Las Vegas, CA, TYR has since relocated to Boulder, CO. As one of the premier hotbeds in America for rising glitch hop and bass music stars, Boulder's apparent influence on TYR's music is a loud one, and makes for a delectable listening (and dancing) experience. Throwing genre preference out the window, his glitched-up boom bap takes on old hits like The Bee Gees - Stayin Alive and Fleetwood Mac's The Chain [...]
Ca y est, les illuminés de Bugarach redescendent de leur pic et attendent certainement la prochaine fin du monde prévue pour le 15 avril 2013, date à laquelle l’astéroïde 2012-AD14 pourrait percuter la Terre...
