Some more marketing genius for you — this time from Mountain Dew. The caffeinated corn syrup has a music program entitled Green Label Sound. The latest offering is rather ridiculously awesome, featuring NYC synthpop act Holy Ghost, along with DFA pals Nancy Whang (ex of LCD Soundsystem) and Juan Maclean, covering the early Ministry track “I Wanted to Tell Her.”
I’m sure Al is just thrilled about this.
Holy Ghost nail pretty much everything, from the bass sound, soulful backup vocal, 80’s synth and the With Sympathy cover art. Listen/download:
