Al Lover’s Remixes Captain Beefheart on ‘Safe as Milk Replica’

[28 January 2011]

By Eric Allen Been

San Francisco-based producer Al Lover has honored the late great Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) with Safe as Milk Replica, a “distorted reworking” of the art-rock sage’s 1967 debut album Safe as Milk. On the project, Al Lover’s deconstructs Beefheart’s cacophonic blues with a MPC sampler to concoct, as he puts it, “fuzzed out psychedelic boom-bap shit”. 

You can stream the entire album below or download it at Al Lover’s Bandcamp website.
