We love what Turntable Kitchen has been doing with various artists, teaming up with them to release full covers of classic albums and artists on vinyl. The latest such ear turning foray involves Washington, D.C. indie duo GEMS, who’ve chosen to cover John Lennon’s LP Imagine in its entirety. Crippled Inside is the latest single they’ve shared from the project. We never expected to hear Lennon in quite such a fashion, but GEMS has created a gorgeously dark electro/alt-pop rendition of Crippled Inside, inflected with shades of breathy Phantogram and hints of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill. Deliciously warped synths adorn the sensuously bewitching cover. GEMS’ cover of John Lennon’s Imagine is available exclusively from Turntable Kitchen’s SOUNDS DELICIOUS vinyl subscription service, here.
