I thought it was Dan Olsen, of Folding Ideas; but, then, I know little about music.

More fun than a gloomy dismal self-deprecating song should be!!

Great idea and almost a great execution, but to my ear the vocal phrasing wasn’t quite as ‘swingy’ as it should have been to match the music track.

I love Pomplamoose and especially love watching the interaction between the bassist and the keyboardist. The bassist with the glasses usually looks to be on the verge of jumping out of his seat every time he plays and the keyboardist responds with the same energy.

Like in this cover they both start to leave the seat of the chair. Such a joy to watch:

That bass line is frickin’ tight.

Scary Pockets is awesome; I’ve been hip to them for a while now.

And if anyone wants a truly soulful version of Creep, this is just superb. A voice to die for. When she really gets going, it’s mesmerising. I strongly recommend letting Google take you to more of her stuff.

ETA @beschizza you should probably try this one, too. It is stunning.

A better match of the mood of the music to the lyrics is why I prefer the Aztec Camera cover of Jump to the original.
