(Re)mixed responses - exploring il/legitimate appropriation from remix to sampling to blatant rip-off
Good on Gotye! Yesterday his track ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ which he did with Kimbra came in as number one in yesterday’s Hottest 100 count down on Triple J. While I’d heard this cover before, it’s timely to post about it. Canadian band Walk Off the Earth used just one guitar between all the band members to record an very cute cover of the track ^_^
