Way Yes, a Columbus music duo who we think you should watch, recently completed a cover of Calvin Johnson's "When Hearts Turn Blue" for a Johnson-approved compilation "Hot Chocolate Nation: A Tribute to Calvin Johnson".
Johnson, who was in Columbus this week, is the highly influential founder of K Records and a member of iconic bands such as Beat Happening and The Halo Benders. Way Yes' Glenn Davis certainly has specks of Johnson's baritone moan in his cartoonish vocals, though this new interpretation of Johnson's tune is significantly zanier than the original.
Way Yes has two shows in Columbus this weekend: Friday at Kobo and Saturday at Carabar.
