John Vanderslice – “Big Brother” (David Bowie Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)
For reasons presumably unrelated to Davie Bowie’s triumphant recent reemergence, the veteran indie singer-songwriter and studio rat John Vanderslice has covered Bowie’s stone-classic 1974 album Diamond Dogs in full. Through Kickstarter, Vanderslice is crowdfunding the release of that Diamond Dogs cover, as well as Dagger Beach, his own new album. Vanderslice has already more than tripled his Kickstarter goal, with time left to go, so rest assured that both records will arrive this spring. And below, you can watch Vanderslice’s Kickstarter video and download his sleepy, diffuse take on the Diamond Dogs track “Big Brother.”
