Headless Heroes: Best covers album you may not have heard

The collaborative effort known as the Headless Heroes have got it covered on their new LP,The Silence of Love. The album is a beautiful melancholy themed album of all cover songs, created by Eddie Bezalel and Hugo Nicolson. The pair pulled together the songs with the help of fellow musicians (Josh Klinghoffer, Woody Jackson, Joey Waronker, Leo Abrahams & Gus Seyffert), along with the sweet voice of Alela Diane, who Bezalel found via her Myspace. Bezalel said upon hearing her voice, he instantly knew she was the one to carry the tunes. The LP is a collection of lost classics and unearthed gems that stretches over 40 years of time, ranging from Daniel Johnston, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, to Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs and The Gentle Soul.
The album is currently out just in Europe, while in the U.S. & Canada it is due to hit stores in May of 2009.
Below you can check out versions of Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in The End" and the Jesus & Mary Chain's, "Just Like Honey."
