The Record Company – So What’ Cha Want

May 31, 2012

RIP Adam “MCA” Yauch. The world mourned the death of a musical innovator a few weeks ago, but few did it with quite as much swagger and grace as The Record Company, an LA trio that takes what the Black Keys have done for blues rock, digests it and then says, “fuck it.” On the Beastie Boys cover “So What’ Cha Want,” it’s clear that they don’t have Dan Auerbach’s vocals, nor do they have the million dollar production value, but you get the feeling that The Record Company doesn’t care. Their charm lies in the grit-and-grime that coats their sound, just as the calculated sloppiness of the Beastie Boys is often what made their tracks so addicting and so goddamn lovable.
