Activity from scratch my back

Music Monday: Peter Gabriel

Posted by on Mon, January 25th, 2010 at 1:00 pm

Great news for Indie Rock nerds, Peter Gabriel is paying tribute to some of your folk heroes! Peter Gabriel is one of TSG’s favorites, songs like In Your Eyes and Solsbury Hill are big go-to’s. But, if you’re a fan of Bon Iver, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, David Bowie or Paul Simon (just to name a few), Peter Gabriel has a glorious gift for you.

Scratch My Back is Peter Gabriel’s latest project which consists of covers of some of Indie Rock’s most celebrated artists (semi-ironic sentence). Just check out this track list:

‘”Heroes”‘ – David Bowie
“Street Spirit (Fade Out)” – Radiohead
“The Book Of Love” – Magnetic Fields
“Flume” – Bon Iver
“My Body Is A Cage” – Arcade Fire
“Listening Wind” – Talking Heads
“I Think It’s Going to Rain Today” – Randy Newman
“Après Moi” – Regina Spektor or Eartha Kitt
“Waterloo Sunset” – The Kinks
“The Boy In The Bubble” – Paul Simon
“The Power Of The Heart” – Lou Reed
“Philadelphia” – Neil Young
“Mirrorball” – Elbow

Check out this cover of Bon Iver’s Flume.

This is due in stores on February 15th, so I’d assume it’ll be available on iTunes that same day. But if it’s earlier or even already available there, great!

Can’t wait.

My heart went ‘boom! boom! boom!’…
