About a year ago I caught the reunited Clem Snide at a club show here in L.A. The band was touring behind the release of Hungry Bird, which while recorded in 2006, prior to the band’s split, was not released until 2009. Eef Barzelay has always had a way with a cover. Oddly distinctive and immediately identifiable, Barzelay’s voice that night lit into a languid rendition of Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets To Paradise.” This FM radio staple staple, left over from the mid-80s, was transformed in a haunted plea; all before the majority of the audience caught on to what they were hearing. Below is an acoustic, solo, rendering of the tune.

Clem Snide’s new LP, The Meat of Life, is out later this month (February 23rd) via 429 Records.
