So I am way behind the curve on this one (apparently this single was a big deal in February), but any group that samples Kid Cudi and Iron and Wine on the same track is worth a listen. Barbara is an electro-pop group, based out of LA, that has both a sense of humor (this cover was the result of some late night drinking/creativity) and a love of hip hop, with a folksy twist of course. Their cover of Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness is honestly pure brilliance, sure it’s no original, but Barbara’s surf town spin leaves us fat and happy. This cover is beach meets streets. So open up your ears and let Barbara drop a little heat your way…don’t worry, this tune is more pleasant warm breezes, not Dubai sandstorms.
