Pianist Scott Bradlee’s band Postmodern Jukebox puts a retro-swing and big-band twist on contemporary pop songs, and you may remember them for this impossible-not-to-love treatment of “All About That Bass” featuring actual bass player Kate Davis.

Their latest oeuvre? A smoking, sultry take on Fiona Apple’s hit “Criminal.”

Fans of the FX TV show American Horror Story (which happens to feature opening theme music from NIN alum Charlie Clouser) might also remember this cover from the series’ carnival-themed Freakshow season, fronted by actress Sarah Paulson as the Siamese twins Dot and Bette.
