Jim O'Rourke and Thurston Moore Cover Burt Bacharach

The Jim O'Rourke helmed Burt Bacharach tribute record All Kinds of People ~Love Burt Bacharach~ dropped exclusively in Japan last week. While it is available on the Japanese version of iTunes, short of importing the record, there's no way to legitimately access it in the US. Fortunately, one of the tracks from the record featuring Thurston Moore on vocals and Glenn Kotche on the drums surfaced this week on YouTube. It's a well-crafted cover of the Bacharach standard "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me", showcasing O'Rourke's unique brand of straight-forward production. Hopefully we'll get a few more listens via YouTube in the coming weeks and, god willing, a US release of the record by the end of the year.
