Best Covers: Weezer ‘Take on me’

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has landed his dream job – playing Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo in a new video.

The actor, singer and self-confessed Weezer superfan appears as Cuomo in the band’s promo to accompany their cover of A-Ha’s 1984 classic Take On Me.

The video, which begins with Finn – as Rivers – dreaming up band names, features the actor jamming with his real-life Calpurnia bandmates in his parents’ living room back in 1985, while shooting a grainy home video to accompany their new song.

The clip also includes black and white animation just like the original a-ha promo, in which a sketch of frontman Morten Harket comes to life.

Best Covers: Calpurnia “Say It Ain’t So”

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.”

Music by Bergman: The Magic Gang 

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.
