Let's Check Out An Orchestral Take On Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 at 11:00 AM

As I've said before, I'm a big damn fan of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's debut album, The Heist, which I'll go ahead and say was one of the best albums of 2012.

But this arrangement of my favorite song on the album, "Can't Hold Us," is just impressive. It's a damn good, incredibly accurate (compare it to the original version, if you have any doubts) take on a hell of a tune.

(Full disclosure: the composer of these arrangements is a friend of mine — but I wouldn't be posting this on here if I didn't think it was actually damn good. So, uh, good job there, bud.)
