[Watch] Beck's Record Club - “Santorini” (Yanni Cover)

Beck teams up with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Tortoise for the 5th Record Club session which features re-interpretation of Yanni's Yanni Live At The Acropolis. But i'll let Mr. Hansen explain more:

This installment of the Record Club takes on ‘Yanni Live At The Acropolis’. The original album featured Yanni with a full orchestra at the Athenian Acropolis. A TV special of the concert was played repeatedly on PBS through the mid 90’s. To flesh out and capture the complex arrangements, several studio musician heavyweights were brought in to read a heavily doctored score with interpolations of everything from Stravinsky to Shania Twain (look for others). Beck and Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth provided auxiliary music and noise, with Thurston improvising lyrics over the previously instrumental track ‘Santorini.’ The new lyrics give the track an added urgency and pathos. Tortoise show up later on a few other tracks.

[Download] El-P - "Everything Must Go" (Lost Demo)

I remember when I had this demo on my old hard drive. I loved this version, not to say I dont like the one on I'll Sleep When You're Dead. This track reminded me of that old Black Star joint "Definition". Glad to see El let this one out of the dungeon and have it mixed and mastered. Although, I'm a little bummed that the "shhhh...the baby is sleeping" part where everyone Wyles out is gone. But I forgive you.

[Listen] Dirty Projectors & Björk - "All We Are", Collaboration Releases Today

Last week it was announced that Dirty Projectors were working on a collaboration with the ever so amazing (and my future wife) Björk on a 7 track EP titled Mount Wittenberg Orca. The EP is now available as a digital download here. Check out the track "All We Are" below and pick up this awesome album, not only because its great but because it is for a great cause.

David Longstreth from the Dirty Projectors stated in an online letter on the website:

We’ve decided to give away all the money that Wittenberg generates to the project of creating international marine protected areas. Only 1% of the oceans are protected in any way and this is a huge problem. We’re working with the National Geographic Society to create areas of sustainability, so the oceans don’t end up like a giant poisonous corpse hugging the continents. You can learn more about this project here and here and here and here.

We’re so psyched about how this recording came out and hope you are too. Don’t listen on those tinny computer speakers — put in on the stereo and blast dat shiiiiiiiiii!!

Enjoy.
