From Louisville, Kentucky’s the Quiet Hollers, this fantastic barebones rendition of Madonna’s “Material Girl,” comes at the pop classic from a very different angle. Regarding the cover, lead singer/songwriter Shadwick Wilde said, “My first reaction was horror… as I instinctively recoil from so-called “pop” music. But the lyrics are so fucking sad, and the theme so apropos for an unknown band trying to raise some cash – I had to take an honest crack at it.
