Listen: Brian Eno Embraces Robot Funk on 'Glitch'

Brian Eno collaborated with poet Rick Holland to create Drums Between the Bells, the innovative musician and producer's second album for the highly respected electronic music label Warp Records. Whereas Eno's previous album for the label, Small Craft on a Milk Sea, favored dirty guitars and ambient drones, the first track from Drums, "Glitch," leans hard on funky bass and buzzing synthesizers. Holland's words are delivered in a computerized monotone, making the song come off like the disco daydreams of a very pensive hard drive. The album will be in stores on July 5th, but you can hear the song in the SoundCloud stream below.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
