Here are two tracks off of Peter Gabriel’s upcoming orchestral indie rock cover album Scratch My Back. It’s hard to judge these fairly, because the originals already won my heart over, but there is no denying that Gabriel’s orchestral interpretations are beautiful. The deep, dark, swelling build up of “My Body Is A Cage” is breathtaking and Gabriel nails the desperation in the melody of “Flume”. The orchestra adds a really dramatic ambiance to these already moving songs. Both of these are must haves. Check it out.
