Femme FataleTy Segall
This may be the coolest idea for a compilation album EVER.
Last year, John Dwyer’s label Castle Face Records released “The Velvet Underground & Nico” by Castle Face and Friends, which covers the entirety of The Velvet Underground’s debut album, in sequence, with a different band covering each song. Which may sound like a stunt—hell, it is a stunt—but it works. There isn’t a soggy patch to be found on this record (except maybe “Run Run Run” covered by White Fence). Great bands covering great songs, and their interpretations are brilliant enough they’ve made me listen to the original Banana Album again, hearing innovations and possibilities I hadn’t noticed before.
Here’s Ty Segall’s take on “Femme Fatale.”
