Confluence of minds of the day: Starbucks’ label Hear Music/Concord is compiling covers of Fleetwood Mac classics from a plethora of great indie acts onto a tribute record, Just Tell Me That You Want Me. Seventeen musicians, ranging from Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo to Washed Out, will cover tracks from throughout Fleetwood Mac’s oeuvre. The first track we can sample is the New Pornographers’ cover of “Think About Me,” which Canada’s finest ensemble supergroup have made really sound like a New Pornographers song – plenty of playful harmonies, soaring keyboards, anthemic singalongs – without sacrificing the power of Fleetwood’s original. Check it out – the rest of the comp drops August 14.
