Tuesday Morning Music: Beck & friends cover The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning”
I found out yesterday via the awesome roio audio archive (bookmark it! bookmark it!) that Beck has started hosting a “Record Club” at his official web site where he gets together with friends like Wilco, Devendra Banhart, MGMT and Feist to cover some of their favorite albums in their entirety. The first album he tackled with his pals (including actor Giovanni Ribisi on glockenspiel on this track) was the classic The Velvet Underground & Nico album. You can download the entire effort for free here via roio. It’s definitely worth owning if you’re a fan of VU, Beck or both.
p.s. If you’re interested, roio has also uploaded Beck’s take on Songs Of Leonard Cohen.
