Stephen Colbert once described Kyp Malone’s monster beard as “like a vacation in a faraway forest.” The TV on the Radio guitar player boasts more than an epic facewarmer though, as he demonstrates in a new performance at The Bay Bridged. Not only does he debut new songs “Gun Inside My Head” and “Holy Shit,” he covers the children’s folk tune “Frog Went A-Courtin’.” Now there’s a cheery pairing!
Malone strums through the tune on a resonator guitar, his scorched-earth vocals giving the song a darker sheen than the typical Raffi-esq treatment. Stream the song below along with the video (song starts at 1:15) then go grab the MP3 at The Bay Bridged.
