Watch Kurt Vile Cover Neil Young’s “Albuquerque” On RocKwiz
Per Facebook, “RocKwiz is Australia’s premier live music trivia quiz TV program featuring an entertaining mix of celebrities, chat, music, and comedy.” On Monday, that mix included Kurt Vile and Phoebe Baker, the Ellie Goulding-esque lead singer of Australian indie rockers Alpine. The pair closed the show with a cover of Neil Young’s “Albuquerque” in keeping with the show’s plot outline: “Hosted by Julia Zemiro and Brian Nankervis, each program features two musical celebrities and four contestants who play off for nothing more than the honour of winning. Each musical guest performs a song with the RocKwiz Orkestra before joining together to close the show with a duet.” Australia, man! Vile also played his own Wakin On A Pretty Daze jam “Snowflakes Are Dancing.” Watch both performances below.
In other news, it’s springtime, which means (a) Wakin On A Pretty Daze has been out for about a year and (b) it’s time to revisit Wakin On A Pretty Daze.
