Hear Beck Cover John Martyn – “Stormbringer”

Given Beck’s acoustic and country leanings of late, it should come as no surprise that his recent studio take on folk legend John Martyn’s “Stormbringer” exceeds expectations. But still, of all the cuts off the new Martyn tribute album, Johnny Boy Would Love This, Beck’s contribution is one of a few that manage to channel the late British songwriter with such reverent attention to the original. The haunting result is one of Beck’s best studio recordings of the year so far. Hear it above (via SKoA).
