Today we found out that pop sensation Gotye will be performing in Milwaukee at the Riverside Theater this summer.  His track "Somebody That I Used To Know" has become almost ubiquitous.  The summer hit we most likely be the highlight of his Milwaukee show, and with the announcement of this concert, I wanted to feature a cool cover of this track.

Many acts have covered this song, but my personal favorite is Michael Kiwanuka's BBC1 performance.  He delivers the track with an almost Afro-Beat approach to the song.
