For all of you Kraftwerk fans out there — I’m about to blow your mind. Listen to Seu Jorge and his band Almaz (probably best known as the musician singing old David Bowie songs in Wes Anderson’s movie, Life Aquatic) sing Kraftwerk’s song “Das Model” from their 1978 album Die Mensch Maschine. Jorge’s voice is haunting and low, and the melody is played via reverbed-guitar pics rather than a keyboard (original song here). To die for.
