“Entertainment Weekly Best of Web 2013: Every other Tuesday, the troupe of musicians post a new video experiment - like "Epic Key Changes" and "History of Misheard Lyrics" - on it's irresistibly innovative YouTube Channel.”

“CDZA, a group of musicians who you may remember from "The Human Jukebox," is back with a great new video tribute to New York City streets and their famous musician namesakes. Watch "City Streets, Famous Musicians" above and see the group play Marvin Gaye on Gay Street, Katy Perry on Perry Street, Bing Crosby on Crosby Street, and, of course, some Ruff Ryders in Ryders Alley. Our favorite moment? On the corner of West and Clarkson streets, CDZA starts with Kanye West's "Power," then pivots to play Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone." Brilliant. Their gimmick focuses on downtown Manhattan but going forward hopefully they can extend it across all five boroughs. Willie Nelson on Nelson Avenue in the Bronx? Jefferson Starship on Jefferson Avenue in Brooklyn? So many possibilities.”

“You know how sometimes you're hanging out with your bros, and you run the lyrics to "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" through Google Translate 64 times, translate it back to English, and perform it on the Internet? No? CDZA, a musical experiment collective (you may remember their "Zuckerberg: The Musical"), did just that to pretty outstanding results, and the broken English gives it a refreshing edge. Shot in what appears to be one take, they rounded up a full band and a cast to play Will, Will's mom, the cab driver and the rest of the gang. Between this and the live-action "Toy Story," it looks like 2013 could be the year of the weirdly impressive YouTube novelties.”
