Making Patterns Rhyme: A Tribute to Duran Duran
Founded by fashion editor Paul Beahan in late 2006, Manimal Vinyl Records has quickly established itself a unique leader in all things underground and indie by launching into the market such band like Bat for Lashes and Warpaint. Now, after the 2010’s Bowie’s tribute (which featured Duran Duran’s stellar cover of “Boys Keep Swinging” along with Carla Bruni, Edward Sharpe, and others) comes the long promised Duran Duran tribute record named Making Patterns Rhyme: A Tribute to Duran Duran, out October 23rd.
The selection – 22 tracks – ranges amongst album cuts and B-sides rather than the worldwide smash hits Duran Duran is known for. Each track is been ri-arranged by cutting-edge indie artists that have recognized Duran’s legacy as new wave pioneers.
Making Patterns Rhyme is a great record, unusual as well as original, well produced and played. Last, but not least, all proceeds from the release will go to Amnesty International.
Definitely, Making Patterns Rhyme is more than a tribute. Preorder on iTunes here. Or taste it with a little selection below.
