  • Following in the footsteps of prior Stereogum-curated tribute albums (see Drive XV: A Tribute to R.E.M.'s Automatic for the People and OKX: A Tribute to Radiohead's OK Computer) comes this track-by-track cover of Björk's Post, which, along with Liars, features contributions from Dirty Projectors ("Hyperballad"), Xiu Xiu ("Isobel"), Atlas Sound ("Headphones"), No Age ("It's Oh So Quiet (Alternate Take)"), and others. This one starts off with the sound of a shotgun loading before sickeningly lurching along at half speed, all distorted and compressed to hell, with Angus Andrews' croon floating over the top. Brings to mind the stuff from the 2004 EP There's Always Room On the Broom and the split with Oneida.
