Al Lover's Remixes Captain Beefheart on 'Safe as Milk Replica'

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.

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