I'm a fan of anyone who inspires Tom Waits to do the things he does, and Captain Beefheart was one of those musicians. Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart, was the artist behind influential 1960s surrealist rock, where bluesy sound and weird time signatures abound. He died last month, and many a musician has spoken about Beefheart's legacy. A great new tribute is an album by San Francisco-based producer Al Lover, where he takes Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band's album "Safe as Milk" and replicates it as if "seen through a shattered mirror reflecting into eternity." Check it out or download it for free here. As he says in his blog it's "beautiful ugly music. Pretty weird, the only way to make a Beefheart tribute, I guess."
