I’m pleased that Beck and his friends realize the genius that is “KICK” – the album by INXS. I’ve come across two new covers, “Need You Tonight” and “New Sensation” from the new album being recorded by Beck (which I wrote about here last month).
“St. Vincent takes lead vocals, while Liars’s Angus Andrew backs her up for this Record Club submission. Previously we saw and heard them do Kick’s “Guns In The Sky,” “New Sensation” and “Devil Inside.” The original track was sexy already; St. Vincent keeps her voice at a breathy purr for this cover.”
But compared to the original?
How are YOU all feeling about this? I love seeing the beginning of the video with Beck and the other musicians working on “New Sensation” while listening to the INXS original. I’m just worried these new versions are a little bit sleepy.
Again, though. I’m thrilled this music is being appreciated and recognized for its greatness. Now, I’ll take my fat ass back to 1988.
