Scott Bradlee’s Post­mod­ern Juke­box – The Essentials

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - 8/FILM - TOM WHITE 3/5

It is per­haps fit­ting that the Post­mod­ern Juke­box’s so­cial me­dia break­through came with a rag­time-style cover of Thrift Shop – the song’s claim that: “I wear your grandad’s clothes, I look in­cred­i­ble,” fits well with PMJ’s ethos. Founder mem­ber Robyn Adele Anderson kicks off the al­bum with Mi­ley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop, while other vo­cal­ists are drawn from mu­si­cal theatre, Amer­i­can Idol, and even out­side of mu­sic as Pud­dles the Clown takes on Lorde’s Roy­als. Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass is a rel­a­tive dud but Maiya Sykes’ I Be­lieve In A Thing Called Love by the Dark­ness is a high­light. Mykal Kil­gore’s lu­di­crous ver­sion of Ce­line Dion’s My Heart Will Go On is even bet­ter, but PMJ’s style may be bet­ter suited to small doses than an 18-song al­bum.
