One of the first albums I ever bought... on vinyl... "kick" by INXS will always have a special place in my heart. It is truly an awesome album... one that, up until tonight, I was of the opinion should be left alone. That is... until I heard these fab covers... including some awesome vocals by St Vincent (the curly haired lass).
Beck has brought together some amazing musicians and really facilitated some awesomeness. Their approach to the songs walks on the knife edge of reverence and the-sound-of-now... and I really like that.
Enjoy these videos... and marvel at the genius of their whole.
