Video: Charlie Coffeen with Angéle Anise and Tyler Berg – “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” (Kendrick Lamar Cover)

 

Sidewalk Chalk‘s Charlie Coffeen dropped an in-studio video for a cover of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.” The track, from the Grammy nominated album Good Kid M.A.A.D City, features vocals by Angéle Anise and drums by fellow Sidewalk Chalk member Tyler Berg.

“I’ve been wearing Kendrick’s album out since it dropped, and I had an idea to do a version of this song while I was on the road for some shows last month,” Coffeen says. “Angéle is one of my favorite vocalists, and Tyler and I play together all the time. This line-up seemed like the right fit to do something special with this song, so we got together for a few hours at I.V. Lab in Chicago with some friends around to shoot the performance and ended up with this.”

Sidewalk Chalk is releasing its sophomore album, Leaves, on February 25th before touring across the US. Initial dates include Chicago at the Double Door (2/21), DROM in New York (2/22), and Hotel Cafe in LA (3/28).
