Hear Stephen Malkmus Cover The L.A. Guns

    Back in December, it was announced that Stephen Malkmus and L.A. hair metal vets L.A. Guns were going to be covering each other on a new single for Matador Records. The single is a part of the new Matador subscription series, which is be hella exclusive, which is why it took this long for the Malkmus-led cover of L.A. Guns to hit the net. It’s streaming now as part of a radio show, and you can hear it at the 1:48:10 mark over here. Malkmus plays “Wheels of Fire,” and apart from removing the weird guitar effects in the background, it actually sounds a lot like the original. Listen to the original below. [Via Stereogum
