Bixlee – Straight Up (Paula Abdul Cover)

If Marilyn Manson and Paula Abdul’s first global smash had a chilling lovechild it would be Bixlee’s aggressive flip of “Straight Up.”

A DIY-electro take twenty years in the making, the Wisconsin solo act’s spin that started as a gag among friends is now a preview of his upcoming covers album Cover Charge out July 9th on El Burro Records. Industrial instrumentation and a near-menacing vocal imprint take this in a direction the original could never imagine, but hints of its melodic traits remain to bridge a sense of nostalgia and modernity.

And that coalescence is what you’re here for. Stream below and spread that social love:
