From the great new Vanity Records comp, Vanity: Finest Selection 1978-1981. Vanity was a short-lived, experimental electronic/post-punk label in the late ’70’s/early 80’s. This track from folk-rock singer-turned electro pop experimentalist Morio Agata sounds a dead ringer for Joy Division‘s “She’s Lost Control.” Almost TOO much, but I love it. Even though this was just released a couple of months ago, it was limited to 1000 copies on white vinyl, and is already hard to come by. If you see it, pick it up.
A Modern Songbook by Kaelin Bougneit Well, this cover of Gary Numan / Tubeway Army’s classic “Are “Friends” Electric?” Is most definitely the best cover
