One thing I love about the Internet is the opportunity to disappear down rabbit holes, exploring music you never would have heard in the past. One of my favourite ways to while away some time (when I used to have it spare) was listening to acapella versions of indie, rock or electronic songs I love. It started back in the days of Limewire when I as tumbled upon something called Emocapella, who performed acapella versions of emo songs, unsurprisingly (I was particularly taken with their version of Taking Back Sunday’s Cute without the E).
Since then I have known and loved acapella versions of Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Doug E Fresh and many more, but my all time favourite, and this week’s song to start your week, is this version of Crystal Castles ‘Untrust Us’. Not sure why it works so well, even without lyrics, but it really, really does. Enjoy!
