Hair of the Frog - Three Weird Sisters
This is their second album, and the second cover of one of Cheryl's song. I wish more groups were like them.
I really like this album. I had commented that their first album Rite the First Time was a bit uneven, but this album seems very consistent. Their cover of Orbiting Jupiter is quite different than anything Cheryl might do, but I like it. The album mostly has a rennaissance flavor, but with modern humor mixed in (e.g., Pointed Haired Boss.)
For those of you who are Harry Potter fans, this isn't the group you should be mad at; they didn't do it!
For those who don't know, the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has a dance scene where the music is provided by a group called "The Weird Sisters". When Warner Brothers started working on making the book into a movie, they contacted this group about using a name similar to theirs. Since the members are big fans of the books and the movies, they had no problem. However, a Canadian band with a similar name apparently got very nasty, so Warner Brothers didn't mention the name of the band, and in the movie, the band was all guys.
Many fans got very upset about this (I wasn't too happy, either, and thought it was a dumb thing for the band to do.) When I first read about all of this, I couldn't believe it was the same group, and when I researched the story, I was glad to find out it wasn't them.
