New The Killers song Some Kind Of Love is said to be inspired by Brian Eno, who’s even credited as a songwriter on the track. Some Kind Of Love draws heavily from Brian Eno’s 1983 song An Ending (Ascent). It’s a serenely meandering, ambient roaming beauty, topped off with Brandon Flowers’ signature vocals and the Vegas heartthrobs’ trademark heartland twang. Some Kind Of Love drips with optimism and hope. It’s the heartening and inspiring anthem we all need. New The Killers album Wonderful Wonderful arrives September 22nd on Island Records, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people are wild with excitement for the release. If you haven’t pre-ordered the album yet, you can do so, here.

Grizzly Bear x Nicolas Jaar

April 22, 2013

In one of the weekend’s awesome Record Store Day exclusive releases, Grizzly Bear’s Sleeping Ute got the remix treatment from genius electronic musician Nicolas Jaar. Get ready for a variable soundscape that lies, for the most part, in the downtempo region. It’s a long, haunting, hypnotizing remix off a collaborative 12" that also features a remix of Brian Eno’s Lux. Wonder who got their lucky paws on this one on Saturday?

Annie Clark (St Vincent) covering Brian Eno

June 5, 2012

I do not expect less than amazeballs when Annie Clark is involved. I’m not saying I love EVERYTHING she does, I’m saying I’m amazed by everything she does. And I love almost everything she does, to boot. Here’s the amazing, talented lead of St Vincent covering Brian Eno’s Some of Them Are Old. The cover was recorded in Elvis Costello keyboardist Steve Nieve’s home in Paris. Set everything down, close your eyes (unless you’re watching the desert footage interspersed video), and just listen to Ms. Clark take it away. What an angelic voice when she’s not storming through one of her crazier songs (and even then she sounds angelic but intense). Here’s proof that she doesn’t need crazy electric guitar solos and shredding to keep us mesmerized. But I do miss the heavy guitar showcase by arguably one of the best female guitarists of the current scene. Mad props to this lovely lady, mad props.

This is great, and I’m going to enjoy sifting through it. This page lists all the covers St Vincent has done and counting. Plus, several are with Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), and some are with other artists.
