Our pal over at DHADM sent this little gem over to us today. Petra Haden was a vocalist and violinist for the late 90’s band That Dog (Who’s “Retreat from the Sun” is one of my favorite pop albums), before joining former Weezer alum Matt Sharpe in The Rentals and her brother Josh in Spain. In between band gigs, Petra has put out a couple of acappella albums showcasing her almost freakishly versatile voice.
That in and of itself might not be so noteworthy, but her acappella version of The Who Sell Out really does rank as a must listen for electic music fans. I’d actually forgotten about this until Dragon’s heads up.
