The latest issue of Mojo magazine comes with a free CD: Rumours Revisited — a track-by-track tribute to Fleetwood Mac‘s 1977 classic Rumours. Artists like Yeasayer, Liars, Besnard Lakes and others covered the album’s 11 tracks.
Yeasayer offers a quirky take on the opening track, “Second Hand News.” The rhythm bops along with sprightly electronics, and the band adds slight psychedelic twists with textures and warbly harmonies.
Liars’ cover is quite the opposite. The ominous bowed-bass opening, low vocals and minimal tones make “The Chain” incredibly creepy.
Check out both tracks below, courtesy of Mad Mackerel, and pick up a copy of Mojo to hear the rest.
