discovered this song via the great american television series “the voice.” more importantly, the video’s pretty damn entertaining. these maroon 5 (ok, it’s just that handsome SOB adam levin and some other dudes in tuxes) guys crash a few LA weddings on a saturday in december, bringing a performance of “sugar” to each one.
it’s sweet, and kind of a ripoff of katy perry’s “birthday,” but it’s all gravy.
in the new video for 2:54’s “sugar” from their self-titled album, the british rock band perform in a nightclub packed with impossibly good looking kids who are just there dance. pretty much how all of the uk advertises their nightclubs.
from touring the 10 year old copper blue to the announcement of a new solo album silver age, bob mould is a busy, busy guy. hit the jump to check out the tracklist for the september 4th-due lp as well as all of bob’s upcoming copper blue and dj set tour dates.
brian fallon has a soft spot for pop i’m guessing. turns out, “teenage dream” is still a good song even if brian fallon’s raspy ass is singing. no embed, so watch it at the link below, as well as a video of them performing “sugar.”

bob mould insisted his take on his old band, sugar’s “if i can’t change your mind” was a cover. heck, he even gave them and their singer their proper dues for being such a great band during their time. but not to let technicaities stand in their way of what constitutes a cover, five decemberists and their five acoustic guitars take on the sugar song, sweet harmonies and all.
watch the decemberists performance below and the bob mould “cover” here.
