If you've always wanted to know how to sing Marina's scathing "Hollywood" in Estonian (who hasn't?), here is your chance. After Gonzales reworked Marina's quickly-rising-hit "Hollywood" with a full orchestral version, they performed it together on the Estonian music television program Pop!. The lo-fi footage and effects complete with Marina's killer armadillo shoulders and Gonzales' striking noir, is definitely the most surreal aka best thing we've seen so far today, and the strings treatment underscores what great songwriters both of them are. It also feels somewhat weird, but maybe that's our jaded (messy) American eyes talking. Cop the MP3 below for maximum enjoyment.
