I just wanted to ask everyone if they've ever heard of this string quartet (well it has some bongos in it) doing covers of the entire Deloused album? It's pretty darn sweet.

No...hadn't heard it yet...is it just one of those "String Quartet Tributes?"


I have one for Red Hot Chili Peppers...
Is it something you can buy?

You know honestly I've heard other ones and I have to say their music done that way really brings it out more. It makes sense ... I dunno maybe I'm just silly. I'm not sure if you can buy I mean you should be able to. My fiance was searching for some frooty loops stuff and found it.

its okay... It is interesting to hear how the songs turn out and hot they are so different from the original...but I don't know that it was worth the full 16 bucks that I spent on it.

its amazing...the string quartet cover of radiohead songs are nothing special so i was hesitant when i bought the cover of deloused, but i think its great what parts of certain songs they chose to highlight, it gives the album a differnt feel. definatly worth the buy.

I haven't heard them, but i know of them...i know that they've covered songs by loads of people though. There was a violinist (?) and a chellist who covered Metallica songs a while back as well.

I have the full album. They made a cover of the De-Loused In Comatorium. Its kinda a the mars volta cover - w/o vocals - and it sounds like an orchestra to me. Listen to this band. Its fucking good.

Agreed. I listened and got excited because it was beautiful and it was Mars Volta in a new light. I recommend it.
I did listen to a few of the other string quartets and some are good and others are alright. It is interesting.
