So I was browsing through my social network feeds when I noticed a little title saying “Julia Holter – You & Me Both”, and I was like WHOA is this what I think it is?! Indeed, it was a Julia Holter cover of one of Arthur Russell‘s many brilliant songs. It also happens to be a live recording with a lot of background noises, but really, who cares? Although musically very different from the original, Holter’s expectedly gorgeous reinterpretation captures the vibe of Russell’s songs quite well. The track is featured on the collaborative compilation between Stones Throw and Leaving Records, due out nex tweek.
