Freak folks cover Madonna

From the hilariously-named label Manimal Vinyl is soon to come a Madonna tribute album featuring some of freak folk's freakiest folks. Artists reinterpreting the Material Girl include Devendra Banheart, Lavender Diamond, Bat for Lashes, the Chapin Sisters, Ariel Pink, the Tyde, Giant Drag, VietNam, and Winter Flowers. Don't worry, non-vinyl fetishists; the album will be released in CD format as well. Both editions are expected this fall. Continue on after the jump to find out who's covering what. Can't wait to hear Ariel Pink doing "Like a Virgin." I'm creeped out already!
