We never thought we’d say this, but thanks Mountain Dew for hooking us up with this Ministry cover by a bunch of DFA artists! For real – your favorite hyper-carbonated soda’s Green Label Sound project has been blowing it out of the park in the past year or so, but we’re particularly psyched on their latest release, Holy Ghost!’s cover of Ministry’s “I Wanted to Tell Her,” with vocal appearances by John MacLean and Nancy Whang of the Juan MacLean and LCD Soundsystem.
The track’s great – tightly woven synth riffs and throbbing drums and bass are a thick electro forest of everything you find when you sort your iTunes by “year” and go to the 1980s section, just weird and busy enough to be concretely rooted in today. And we love how cool and collected Whang’s vocals are throughout. Check it out.
