Royal Blood Goes Acoustic on Triple J Radio


British rock duo Royal Blood got reduced to a one-man show during a recent appearance on Australia’s Triple J radio, as singer Mike Kerr performed an acoustic session for the first time.

Wielding a Gretsch G5031FT Rancher Dreadnought, Kerr offered stripped-down renditions of “Better Strangers” and a cover of Cold War Kids hit “Hang Me Out to Dry.”

And for those wondering where drummer Ben Thatcher was hiding out, he was in the studio, as well.

“There are other things going on in the Royal Blood camp,” Thatcher joked. “I’ve got to do all the admin while all this is going on. I’m just emailing Mike the lyrics to the songs.”

Watch Carly Rae Jepsen Perform Acoustic ‘Curiosity’


While in Tokyo recently, Carly Rae Jepsen tabbed guitarists Tavish Crowe and Jared Manierka to play a stripped-down version of the song “Curiosity” for Billboard.

The title track from her 2012 EP is typically an upbeat dance track, but this acoustic version quiets things down considerably. With an impressive skyline in the background, the trio certainly picked a picturesque place to film.

Watch the clip after the jump and check out Jepsen’s official website for more information. (more…)
