Florence and the Machine UkeTube

I’m a bit slow off the mark with Florence and the Machine. The song isn’t particularly uke heavy (and I’m still not 100% convinced that it even is a uke) but I love the song, so it’s here. Also this week is a duet between Seeso and Ukulelezo bursting with sexual tension, Ken Middleton covering a song from my favourite EP of the year and plenty more.

Florence and the Machine – Dog Days are Over

Seeso & Ukulelezo – Angel from Montgomery

antoineetmoi – i could never love a square cuz square’s can’t rock or roll

Uku-Ali – Count Every Star

Howlin’ Hobbit – Jitterbug Blues

Jodie Matthews – Thanks a Lot

Esther Walker & Ed Smalle – I’m Lonely Without You

lisaxy424 – What I Got

Ken Middleton – Murder In The City

    Dog Days are Over is an incredible song! After the link yesterday about Florence and the Machine I decided to check out her music. Now I can’t stop listening to this song and My Boy Builds Coffins!

    ukulellama: Completely agree. I’ve had Dog Days on constant repeat all morning.

    Goodness, what a collection this time!

    First, thanks for including mine.

    “Angel From Montgomery” has long been one of my fave tunes and Ukulelezo and Seeso just tore it up.

    Uku-Ali. Yay!

    Jodie Matthews is pretty much always fab.

    I’ve never seen lisaxy424. She’s good, funny, and cute too. What more could you ask?

    Ken Middleton always reminds me of why the baritone exists.

    And last, but not least, that vintage recording of Esther and Ed was a treat.

    Great job, Woodshed!

    HH – love the song and the video! I want to learn how to do that cool interesting multi-take stuff.

    And ken…so beautiful! The playing, the singing…the lighting is even amazing and very complementary. And the fireplace…gah! I need a fireplace for my setting for the Bushman contest!

    Jodi sez: “I want to learn how to do that cool interesting multi-take stuff.”

    Me too! Though it wasn’t awful for a first try. I’m going to try a slight variation on my process next time and, if it works like I think, I’ll post a blog with a step-by-step of how to do it. This is in iMovie, of course, and a “vintage” version no less. The rest of y’all are on your own. ;-)

    BTW… sorry for mis-spelling your name in my earlier comment. Lord help us, saints protect us, we’ve been having whiskey for breakfast.

    Glad you liked them, Hobbit. Good variety this week I think.

    Thanks for showing my video! Who are you on youtube?

  8. Woodshed December 9th, 2008 8:38 pm

    alosik: You’re welcome. My YouTube page is here but it’s been an age since I uploaded anything.

    What a great version of Murder in the City by Ken Middleton. The Avett Brothers rock!

  10. Woodshed December 10th, 2008 8:27 pm

    bot: They do. I was really knocked out by The Gleam. Every track a winner.

    Dog Days Are Over just blows me away. Can’t wait for her full-length!

  12. Woodshed May 7th, 2009 9:33 am

    Vivian: Me either. Should be great.

    […] Your duet with Seeso on Angel from Montgomery was described by Woodshed of Ukehunt as “bursting with sexual tension.” Ummm – was the duet […]

Got something to say?
