Some of the other dope acts playing fest are Ween, Death Grips, Vince Staples, Jimmy Eat World, Jake Bugg, The Hives, Chevy Metal, Method Man & Redman, Joey Bada$$, Gwar (of course),  and Highly Suspect.

Video: Jake Bugg – “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” in the Christmas Live Lounge

posted by Oscar December 19, 2013

Jake Bugg took part in BBC Radio 1’s Christmas Live Lounge and performed a cover of the holiday classic, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” by fellow Englishman John Lennon. In the middle of playing “Happy Xmas,” Bugg included a verse from another song penned by the former Beatle, the very non-Christmas yet very powerful, “Working Class Hero.”

The performance altogether came out excellently and you can see that clip above.

Video: Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise” (Acoustic)

posted by Oscar November 23, 2013

Jake Bugg released his latest album, Shangri La, earlier this week and the young Brit is already out on the road playing new cuts to help promote it. Bugg played a secret gig at Nottingham’s The Maze in early November and there he performed the track “Slumville Sunrise” with only his acoustic guitar and his vocals doing all the work.

The result is still pretty cool and you can see it in the video shown above.

Jake Bugg – “What Doesn’t Kill You” (Acoustic)

posted by Oscar November 20, 2013

Jake Bugg What Doesn't Kill You

Jake Bugg’s sophomore album (Shangri La) dropped yesterday, 11/19, and today we get an acoustic version of lead single, “What Doesn’t Kill You.” The song, in its original version, is a Punk-y track that packs a good punch and this stripped down acoustic version stays true to that while showcasing Bugg’s vocal abilities and his guitar work under minimal production. It was good but, for someone who’s a sucker for guitar solos, I wish Bugg would have added one on this version.

Hear it over at Pigeons & Planes.
