Ok this is important. First you have to listen to this one:
Residents - It's a Man's Man's Man's World:
And now you have to listen to this one: Molly Harvey - It's a Man's Man's Man's World
Molly Harvey played with the Residents from 1998-2003 and she is amazing to me. The cover of the Residents cover of the James Brown song has become like a fucking anthem for me. I think there is more than one video with her doing this song but they are all fucking amazing.
That really is pretty. Someone just posted it on Facebook, someone who likely has never heard the original song.
It makes you realize how Jeff Mangum's voice is like a rare stone pulled straight from the earth, and this particular Avett brother's voice is like that same stone cut and polished, sitting in a shelf at Zales.
