Post-punk cult band The Feelies were known to throw hip and canny covers into their sets, from The Velvets to The Beatles and Stones. Here Feelie Glenn Mercer pays tribute to the classic Eno LP Another Green World. He’s taken its Fripp-style guitar fuzz and the Eno keyboard sounds and crafted 15 instrumentals. The first 12 tunes are all place-named––“Mobile” has a bluesy R&B groove, “Yuma” and “Laramie” a spaghetti-western feel, and on “Hermosa” it’s surf-rock, and so on. Covers include, of course, an Eno instro (“Here Come The Warm Jets”). This is all nicely produced and played, and begs to be used in your next movie!
