The band led by Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard released their Spotify Singles session, which includes the original “Wasting Time,” Calpurnia’s latest single, and a cover Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”
The version is so good even Rivers Cuomo & co. approved it. Weezer shared the song on Twitter, writing, “Digging
@calpurniaband’s cover of Say It Ain’t So.”
Weezer unveiled a cover of Toto’s 1982 hit “Africa.” The band’s rendition came about after a fan, whose Twitter account is @weezerafrica, lobbied for months to get the band to cover the song.
Weezer have released a cover of “Rosanna,” originally recorded by California band Toto and released as the second single from their 1982 album Toto IV. It’s a pretty straight-ahead cover.
South coast heroes The Magic Gang have released their debut album. The band are a potent live force, while a flurry of singles have perfectly outlined their art-rock manifesto.
The Magic Gang are a Brighton four-piece apparently weaned on Norman Blake’s aforementioned group, Weezer, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and the recently departed London duo Ultimate Painting. The best thing about their self-titled debut might be their four-part harmonies: a raggle-taggle chorus full of personality.
