This is what we listened to a lot over the weekend. It’s a four song covers EP The Duke Spirit released digitally in Europa last November via Rough Trade. Travis at Medication turned me onto it (thanks).
From Rough Trade: “The Duke Spirit return with this Rough Trade digital exclusive featuring four cover versions: Desmond Dekker’s ‘007 (Shanty Town)’; Jessie Mae Hemphill’s ‘I’m So Glad’ and two Tracks by the 60s behemoth, Love. With aching female vocals (a la Mazzy Star and Nico), this is the most obvious pop moment of Duke Spirit’s career – it sounds like it would have been perfect on 4ad in the early 90’s. You need this.” Well, I’m sold. Dig.
