Watch: Indie Luminaries Covering Skip Spence and Neil Young
In celebration of the holiday spirit of sharing, we've got two shining visual examples of how to do just that below, each of which offers up an indie world collaboration of cream-in-your-jeans proportions. First up is the latest entry in Beck's ongoing Record Club -- a full-album covers series that last took on Songs Of Leonard Cohen. This installment continues to cut a swath through Skip Spence's 1969 Oar album, this time featuring Jamie Lidell duetting with Feist while Nels Cline puts in work on guitar.
As if that wasn't enough, a recent video feature on Pitchfork hipped us to this collaboration between No Age's Randy Randall, director Jim Jarmusch and Deerhunter/Atlas Sound main brain Bradford Cox. In the clip below, filmed in a New York hotel room circa ATP 2009, the unlikely trio loops in yet another name of note by covering Neil Young's "Cortex The Killer" (make that two names of note).
