INXS – “Never Tear Us Apart”
The National have shared a cover of INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” as part of Songs For Australia, the new Julia Stone-curated compilation benefitting Australian brushfire relief. The National’s contribution of INXS’s hit track from 1987’s Kick stays true to the original, while adding a quintessential The National-style melancholic twist. The keys-driven cover lets frontman Matt Berninger’s crooning vocals thrive as he delivers classic lines like, “I/ I was standing/ You were there/ Two worlds collided/ And they could never tear us apart.” Listen to the new track here.
Pavement – “Cut Your Hair”
Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus has shared a video for “Shadowbanned,” which stars celebrities like Mac DeMarco, Kurt Vile, Conor Oberst, and more. The amusing new Jan Lankish-directed clip sees a digital version of Malkmus’ face getting superimposed on a variety of musicians and actors including Kim Gordon, Jason Schwartzman, Sharon Van Etten, Superorganism’s Orono Noguchi, and many more.
