I’m not quite sure if The Dude would abide, but the below video appears to be audio of FIDLAR’s “Gimme Something,” laid down over some awesome live footage of a Creedence show. And somehow, it’s a freaking match made in heaven, giving a nostalgic visual punch to a song that could have been recorded in any of the last four decades. What’s not to like?
“Gimme Something” is a bit of curveball for those who’ve been paying attention though, since to date, the morsels we’ve been fed have been more…aggressive than our jangly, crunchy Jam of the Day. So contaminate that comparison list you’ve been keeping for them. Wedge Dr. Dog or Beachwood Sparks in with The Pixies and JEFF the Brotherhood – and blow that list up like one that includes both Milli Vanilli and Bob Dylan.
Give it a watch/listen, and make sure to pick up their eponymous debut, out January 22nd.
