!! OMG, Fever Ray covers Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street” !!

mercy street.jpg
Karin Dreijer Andersson’s alter ego Fever Ray isn’t ready to fade quietly into the night just yet. The Swedish performer will release a cover of Peter Gabriel’s 1986 song “Mercy Street” on Sept. 14 just after she wraps up a series of European shows, which will apparently feature all-new visuals by director Andreas Nilsson. If the stage show is as creepy as the above photo, audiences are in for a treat. Here’s what Karin had to say about the track in a press release:

“We made it more intense and faster to fit our eccentric percussionists and energetic live musicians. It is a monotone track but we worked with the dynamics trying to make it sparkle. I listened to it a lot when I was around 15, and it still moves me. It made me start reading Anne Sexton too.”

“Mercy Street” is available for download for the next 24 hours via NME.com. Tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, Tonight: Free Belinda Carlisle/B-52’s concert at Coney Island !!



Get your asses over to the subway, boys, because the incomparable B-52s are performing at Coney Island tonight with cokehead, PFLAG mommy and living legend Belinda Carlisle. This has me slobbering for a Carlisle/B-52’s mashup (any DJ’s in our readership feel free to make one for me and I will love you forever!), but in the meantime you’ll just have to prepare yourself for the concert by watching some of their greatest videos. By the way, it’s free!
