Fade Into You

A dangerously fragile, acoustic guitar-led, somewhat enervated cover of Mazzy Star’s beautiful Fade Into You by J Mascis to start Monday and the first week of autumn. The ghost of Neil Young never far away, memories of Dinosaur Jr beyond reach. Bizarrely, cheapeningly, this cover version was done for a trainer advert, released on limited 7″ single as a sop to the purists.

Fade Into You

Back to work tomorrow- Tuesday’s coming like a jail on wheels, to misquote Mr Strummer.

Richard X, Hope Sandoval and Jarvis Cocker ‘Into U’

I’ve been listening to the Massive Attack and Hope Sandoval song (Paradise Circus) over the last few days, especially the Gui Boratto remix, and that led me back to this. Richard X, acceptable face of the mash-up (or something). This was off his album from a few years ago. He took Mazzy Star’s Fade Into You, jazzed it up and got Jarvis to sing over it. That’s a technical description of the recording process. Very good track it is too. Wasn’t convinced by some of the rest of the album (Liberty X?).

Looking for pictures to accompany this post, it was beardy Richard X, beardy Jarvis or Hope. Hmmm….
