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.

Yoko Ono & The Flaming Lips – Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

December 24, 2014

I’ve been waiting to share this one with you at the right moment, and obviously, today is the right time. One of my favorite Christmas tunes of all time has got to be John and Yoko’s classic Happy Xmas (War Is Over). It’s such a melting, heart warming, timeless gem. Recently, The Flaming Lips joined up with Yoko to create a new version of the classic. The recording is part of a Christmas compilation named All Is Bright, out on Amazon Prime Music.
