Back Jonathan Coulton’s SOME GUYS ’70s soft rock cover album

My good buddy Johnny C has launched a new Kickstarter for SOME GUYS, an album of gorgeous covers of ’70s soft rock classics. It’s ridiculous and awesome and as a guy who knows a guy, I’ve been listening to the actual album almost non-stop for the past 48 hours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Back it here. You can even get it in vinyl!

Free Jonathan Coulton (or just buy his music)


UPDATE: Jonathan has just made “Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee)” available for purchase on iTunes! BUY IT NOW. Proceeds to charity. Read all about it here.
Laura Hudson has a great overview of the “Glee”/Jonathan Coulton situation over at Wired. If you’re agitated by the whole thing, may I humbly suggest channeling your emotions productively by buying some of Jonathan’s (awesome) music. Here’s the order page.
A few personal recommendations (comic book fans in particular may enjoy the super-villain/sci fi elements of a number of these songs):
“Code Monkey”
“Chiron Beta Prime”
“Better”
“Curl”
“Re: Your Brains”
“Creepy Doll”
“Skullcrusher Mountain”
Also fantastic is the live album “BEST. SHOW. EVER.” Which lives up to its name.
Enjoy!
FULL DISCLOSURE: Jonathan appears in the video extras of the iPad app of my “Vision Machine” graphic novel, which you can download for free right here.
