Brian Eno Covers Lou Reed, Conjures the Titanic on New Album ‘The Ship’ [LISTEN]

Reviews 09:07AM EDT

Brian Eno just released The Ship, his latest full-length solo album on Warp. Apparently, the LP grew out of the legendary producer's fascination with World War I and the sinking of the so-called "unsinkable" Titanic. It plays like a pastiche, conjures a collage of different stories told with the help of sea-like ambient instrumentations that conclude with a pretty straightforward cover of The Velvet Underground's "I'm Set Free," penned by Lou Reed.READ MORE

Lou Reed Recieved All Money from A Tribe Called Quest's 'Can I Kick It?'

Buzz 11:01AM EDT

When one thinks of A Tribe Called Quest, their 1990 debut album anthem "Can I Kick It?" swiftly comes to mind. Although the track's release trailed the unveiling of the silly yet sensual 'People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm' tracks "Bonita Applebum" and "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo," the rap group never saw any money form the song's success. Instead, The Velvet Underground's Lou Reed cashed in from the song's success since the bass line comes straight from the unmistakable 'Transformer' classic hit, "Walk on the Wild Side."READ MORE
