Best Coast, The Kills, Lykke Li & Others Cover Fleetwood Mac

In Culture, Music
Best Coast

Tribute albums are trouble, because they’re usually terrible. And tipping your hat to a band like Fleetwood Mac is a complicated act, not to mention one that requires singular talent. There’s plenty of the latter on Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac which includes indie favorites The Kills, Best Coast, J. Mascis, and Antony, among others.

I’m not saying discard (or delete?) your copy of Rumors just yet. In particular Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino’s cover of “Rhiannon” exchanges the wailing melancholy for a bit of vapid pop sweetness, and it’s not great. If anything, the album is more of a nod to Fleetwood Mac’s legacy, and even the most curmudgeonly fan might appreciate the reminder. The album is set for release on August 14th, and also boasts diverse covers by Lykke Li, Washed Out, and Bonnie “Prince” Billy.
