Stereogum’s complete 12-track Enjoyed comp is live and ready to be downloaded (for free). Yep, 12. Because No Age cooked up an excellent alternate take on “It’s Oh So Quiet,” which we wanted to keep a surprise until … now. In addition to Dean and Randy’s Björk, you’ll hear, in order of appearance, the previously announced covers by Liars, Dirty Projectors, High Places, Bell, Pattern Is Movement, Evangelicals, Xiu Xiu, Final Fantasy & Ed Droste, White Hinterland, El Guincho, and Atlas Sound. Each artist gave us their thoughts on Post, their Enjoyed take, and/or Björk’s work in general (additionally, we’ve included video interviews with High Places, Pattern Is Movement, and El Guincho). We also offer a contextual “essay” and, finally, we caught-up with Björk and asked her for her thoughts, 13 years later, on her 1995 follow-up to Debut. Enjoy!
