HAPPY NEW YEAR | The Endless Sea (Iggy Pop)
This time digital online label BEKO have outdone themselves, teaming up with French indie music magazine, Hartzine, for one of its best free releases yet. This collection features Their Bated Breath favorites: Ela Orleans‘ unique live version of “Beat Goes On”, songs from The KVB, Dead Gaze, Happy New Year (Eleanor Logan) and more. The latter covers Iggy Pop’s creepy and snaking, “The Endless Sea”, off his third solo record “New Values” (1979). It’s a dark beauty: “Oh baby / What a place to be / In the service of the bourgeoisie / Where can my believers be? / I want to jump into the endless sea / Oooh, the endless sea.” Listen to the song below and go to BEKO to download this 18-track gift. It should be available sometime today. — David D. Robbins Jr.
