Various Artists Read: Interpreting Bjàrk
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: Hush
At one point Hush realized how insane it would be to release a Bjàrk tribute album and shelved this whole project. Turns out it's not the disastrous beast it was feared to be. Though you can't take the Bjàrk out of Bjàrk, and acoustic covers of electronic music always seem to be lacking something, Kaitlyn Ni Donovan's "The Hunter" captures the spirit of that song well; likewise Roots of Orchis's "Possibly Maybe," Death Cab crooner Ben Gibbard's "Joga" and fellow Northwesterner Bobby Birdman's "Unravel." A testament to Bjàrk's enduring songwriting and widespread popularity, these covers are more compliments than affronts.
