Pomplamoose covers "Make Me Feel" (Janelle Monae)

And I love it. For those that don't know, the keyboard player and the singer are a couple. They make great music. they're so talented. Some of their covers are really good, some are meh. They do great mash-ups, too, blending 2 or 3 songs in a live setting. I've been watching them for years and years. They do a fun version of "September" by Earth Wind & Fire, and "Single Ladies" from Beyonce. In their earlier videos, they are literally playing every instrument and mixing it, plus recording themselves playing every instrument and building a video around it. It's insane!

They often change up or reinterpret the groove of a song, but this time they really stuck to it. It just has a more acoustic or live feel to it.

By the way, the keyboard player/bearded guy is also the founder and CEO of Patreon.

Oh, and stand by for the "Kiss" sample...

They've been corrected on that.

And the drum comment is way off because it's a live drum, not a Linn. So what's to hear that is Prince? (Plot twist: Nothing.)
