Following his excursion into Downtown NYC via Velvet Underground & Nico, Beck takes his Record Club to Montreal with a track-by-track smothering covering of Songs Of Leonard Cohen. As we mentioned when we posted “Suzanne,” he’s joined by “Devendra Banhart, Ben, Andrew and Matt from MGMT, Andrew from Wolfmother, Binki from Little Joy, and Brian [Lebarton] and Bram [Inscore] returning from the first Record Club.” Here they do “Sisters Of Mercy,” which should make your ears bleed less than their take on “Suzanne.”

Let’s fill-in the gaps:

“The Stranger Song”

“Winter Lady”

“Master Song”

Up next is “So Long, Marianne.”

  1. This is great, but really it didn’t need to be a video. Since it’s essentially a warbling photo.

  2. this is the best thing ive seen in a long while

  3. The video of “Sisters” lacks drama but the song doesn’t. May Leonard Cohen in his 80s and 90s (he’ll be around) sell as much as the Beatles!

    this is disgraceful. Leonard cohen is musical holy-ground and you do not desecrate it. why are there so few leonard cohen covers? oh because people know they can’t touch it. except for ego-maniac pop stars like beck and devendra banhart. how presumptuous. thats what scientology will do to you, people!
