“I got nothin’ for you darlin’, but a story to tell…”

Clearly, I have a thing for Jersey boys. That’s why this is my favorite thing today.

The Cardinal Sessions is a groovy little concept out of Germany, shooting intimate takes of music performances with both up and coming and renowned artists. The quality of the videos they produce is breathtaking (see my all time favorite here).

Yesterday, they posted this session with The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon and Alex Rosamilia doing a stripped down, gorgeous version of “Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?” It is a radically different take on the howling, fast-paced, guitar-heavy original version. As much music as I consume, I’m still blown away that the same song can become an entirely different story when you change the tone.

Love on this.
