"Wow" about sums that up. The song takes Martyn's 1970 original and transforms it into a lost Sea Change track. It's also reminiscent of "Ramona," a song Beck used for the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World soundtrack and one of his better recordings of the past half-decade. We're hoping Beck dedicates an entire Record Club series to Martyn after hearing "Stormbringer."
The Cure, Snow Patrol, Beck's bud Devendra Banhart, Vashti Bunyan, Swell Season, and many more also feature on Johnny Boy Would Love This..., due out August 16th. Check out Martyn's "Stormbringer" below:
