(2020) VA – What Is This That Stands Before Me?
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled Black Sabbath album and ‘Paranoid,’ Sacred Bones is proud to present , a compilation of Sabbath covers recorded by artists from across our roster. Black Sabbath stands at the crossroads of every Sacred Bones employee and artist’s musical taste, and it was a great pleasure for us to work together to reimagine some of their most beloved songs. Here you’ll find Sabbath through the filter of the post-Soviet darkwave of Molchat Doma, the experimental folk of Hilary Woods, the laid-back psych of Moon Duo, and a half dozen more genres besides. The Soft Moon offers a noise-blasted take on “Black Sabbath,” Zola Jesus wraps her always-powerful voice around “Changes,” and the languid psychedelia of Moon Duo’s Stars Are the Light era is a perfect backdrop for their rendition of “Planet Caravan.”
