Cover Me Blind

Imagine the Human League fronted by Dr. Smith from Lost in Space, with a synth assist from R2D2. They are singing "Layla."

Imagine a band called Ethyl Meatplow, not to be confused with Hazel Fishcombine or Eveline Poultryseeder, rocking its bitter way through "Close to You." (I did write rocking, yes.)

Well, you can hear these and more on L.D. Beghtol's High Bias column over at the Village Voice website. Given Beghtol gives voice to one of the Magnetic Fields' most magnetic songs--"All My Little Words"--you know he's someone to trust for sonic brilliance. Plus who else is going to dish up Diamanda Galas and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in the same playlist?
