All Tomorrow's Parties by Beck's Record Club
Not sure if people know about this, but if you do, just skim. Beck has gathered a group of musicians to cover whole albums, and they have just released The Velvet Underground and Nico. It's not bad--I like "Run, Run, Run" more than the original--but what's great about it is the singer on this one, Thorunn Magnusdottir. The only thing I found about her was that she was in this pretty terrible band called The Honeymoon. She has a MySpace, but, unfortunately, Flash requires a newer OS than I have, so no MySpace music for me... Anyhoo, I recommend you watch the video and listen to the other two worthwhile songs on the covers album ("RRR" and "I'll Be Your Mirror"). What do you think?
