Puddles Pity Party Sings About The Corporate Side Of Life For Kabbage.

The more Puddles does, the more I love him. This new video has Puddles reminding us of the hell that is the universe of corporate office work. I would love to know if Puddles worked an office job and left in a spectacular fashion. The words bite hard, as all good art truly should.

You’ll be popping pharmaceuticals & eating lunch in your cubicle
If we keep on the corporate side of life.

This is one of the few examples of sponsored art I’ve ever seen that I honestly support. It was done to create awareness about Kabbage, a funding aggregator for small business. This allows small/agile business to use an Etsy or PayPal account to get funding, based on how much they’re killing it. Ebay stars, your time has come. I frankly like this snarky art paired with a legit service that people who liked the song would use. Plenty of people are trying to hustle out of the corporate world for all of the reasons Puddles discusses. And more power to them. Rock on y’all.

Puddles Returns With A Perfect “Hallelujah” By Leonard Cohen.

Puddles Pity Party is one of the most authentic & crushingly beautiful performers out there now. A sound that legitimately surprises while it compels, with artistry & execution to match. This is now my favorite version of the song, and I’m expecting it to get picked up for all of those sad montage scenes movies use the tune for any minute now. I’m all about Puddles Pity Party, and I couldn’t be more happy that people are starting to know about him. This performance out in San Francisco is a great example of what Gothamites have in store for them if they check out his show at Joe’s Pub on Tuesday night (h/t to AF for the tip). That’s something not to miss y’all. If I ever found a genie, I’d probably use one of my wishes to get an interview with Puddles. Man, that would be an amazing conversation I wager.

Midnight Music: Puddles Returns To Cover Chandeliers By Sia!

Puddles is back!! Just be quiet and watch the clown with the golden voice amaze you. Sia’s Chandeliers is no joke of a tune and he nails it. If you really don’t believe this guy is the real deal, check out this Grantland article, “Let Me Live That Fantasy.” He’s backed up by the Postmodern Jukebox, who are swinging through NYC June 9th, rocking out the Highline Ballroom. There’s not much to say besides, watch the clown work, and appreciate good art.

Three “Royals” Covers You Need To See.

First up, the African Tribal Masquerade cover by Alex Boye’, which was done after purchasing paint & a wreath from Wal-Mart. A wonderful take on the original and something authentic from someone authentic. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Next, Puddles Pity Party. No that’s not the name of an episode of Adventure Time, it’s a 7ft tall clown with the voice of a tragic angel. He swung by Sleep No More last week and I couldn’t be happier that the guy is slowly becoming a name on the internets. The performance is perfect & the Pagliacci invocations are wonderful.

Finally, Pentatonix have whipped up a lovely acapella version for your listening pleasure. This perky little group deserves as much exposure as they can get, especially considering how awesome their sweet Daft Punk medley was a while ago. Check these 3 out, then forward them to your friends who think they’ve seen everything 😉
