To mark the 50th anniversary of The Velvet Underground’s seminal debut, The Velvet Underground & Nico, visual artists James Eads and Chris McDaniel (aka The Glitch) have collaborated on this mesmerizing animation scored with the album’s opening track, the gorgeously somnambulant “Sunday Morning.” [H/T: Dangerous Minds] In related VU debut tribute news, Philly homeboy Mike “Slo-Mo” Brenner has arranged, performed and recorded this gorgeous recreation of the album from beginning to end on slide guitar. Here’s a taste, you can hear the whole album HERE. You can catch him performing select VU covers, along with his own material, ever Sunday at Old City Coffee, 221 Church St., from 3-4pm for free.
