Madonna Gets Freak Folkie

Another tribute tracklist for this fine Thursday, although this one’s already got a name — and also happens to be infinitely less sad than the last. NME reports that the likes of Devendra Banhart, Bat For Lashes, Lavender Diamond, Ariel Pink, Giant Drag, and VietNam will tackle tunes from the material girl’s catalogue for Through The Wilderness: A Tribute To Madonna, to benefit Madge’s Raising Malawi charitable organization. Most of ‘em seem promising, though we want vid reenactments. Devendra in pink strapless dress and gloves to match doing “Material Girl“? Hott. Track assignments after the jump.
