Hear MGMT, Lykke Li, Antony Cover Fleetwood Mac

Previously, New Pornographers and Best Coast teased the forthcoming Fleetwood Mac tribute album Just Tell Me That You Want Me with their covers of “Think About Me” and “Rhiannon,” respectively, and now three new contributions to that compilation have popped up this morning. Hear MGMT’s cover of “Future Games,” Lykke Li’s cover of “Silver Springs” and Antony’s take on “Landslide” down below.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me is out 8/14 on Hear Music/Concord.

  1. The lykke li, one is nice. As for the other two, I’m not really sure which one i hate more…

  2. OOOooo washed out eh? I’d like to see what he did.

  3. silver springs is great! but ugh, my expectations for this are quickly plummeting.

  4. I were someone who decided to do a Fleetwood Mac tribute, I think I’d reach out to bands like Fleet Foxes, Local Natives, Real Estate, Shearwater, Van Etten, Joanna Newsom, The Shins, Tallest Man (just as quick examples) before I went out and asked MGMT, The Kills or Worst Coast. Christ, even the Head and Heart or Yeasayer would be more exciting. There are a ton of great alt bands out there that owe much more to Mac than these bands that are offered. Not to say they’re not great bands, but Fleetwood Mac is much more dynamic a band that some of these bands will ever hope to be, or at least be allowed to interpret.

  5. Everyone and their mother has covered “Landslide” at this point, and so far only Smashing Pumpkins managed to do it well.

    That’s like 25+ years. Holy shit bands suck.

    • I disagree. I much rather hear Antony’s ethereal, haunted voice cover Nicks’ emotive, nostalgic lyrics than Billy Corgan’s wheezing, screechy whine.
      But that’s the great thing – music is subjective of the listener. No one is wrong, no one is right. It’s all what effects/affects whom.

  6. Oh my god, this MGMT song sucks. I had such high hopes for them and they blew it. They effin blew it.

  7. Everyone really hates the mgmt cover that much? Jesus, I thought it was brilliant. The rest of them are sort of meh, escept for Washed Out’s which is beautiful.
