Fjokra - Happy Together (The Turtles)

This is a pretty sweet cover, almost with a Beach Boys and world-like approach. Fjokra, an Irish singer/songwriter multi-instrumentalist I noticed altprogcore mention a few years ago and have been waiting to hear new music from since.

He has made some other covers as well I guess, one being "Electric Feel" by MGMT.

I guess an EP could be coming early this year.

this guy almost reminds me of a cross between Gotye and sElf (Matt Mahaffey). I wonder if he's a sElf fan anyway. Although there's a video on his reverbnation page that sounds more like The Diablo Swing Orchestra meets Mr.Bungle actually, so he's kind of all over the map in some ways.
