Stream: Edward Sharpe, Vivian Girls, Swahili Blonde Cover Bowie

July 14, 2010

Remember that David Bowie tribute album (Repetition), which was slated to include covers by Radiohead, MGMT, France’s first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and many more back in January? Well, the tracklist is still pretty epic (no Radiohead, unfortch), 3 notable streams from the compilation are now available, and the 33-track record will officially drop on September 6 with all proceeds going to War Child International.

In the run-up to the fall release, however, Manimal Vinyl are previewing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ “Memory of a Free Festival” cover, Vivian Girls taking on Bowie’s 1972 song “John, I’m Only Dancing,” and Berlin-era cut “Red Money” as covered by Swahili Blonde (featuring ex-Red Hot Chili Pepper John Frusciante). Stream the latter track on MySpace, the former two below, and pre-order the album here:
