Mantar Debut Sonic Youth Cover
Germany’s Mantar have shared another song from their forthcoming covers collection, Grungetown Hooligans II. Specifically, they’ve shared their take on Sonic Youth’s 1992 song, “100%.” And not only have they shared their take on Sonic Youth’s “100%,” but they’ve done so via a new music video which is also an homage to the original Sonic Youth video. In another thirty years, some other band will cover Mantar’s cover and make a video paying tribute to the video they made to pay tribute to Sonic Youth, and we’ll be in bonafide Inception territory.
Check out Mantar’s Sonic Youth’s “100%” via the below Matthis Van Der Meulen-directed video (I’ve put the original Sonic Youth video below that as well). Grungetown Hooligans II will be released via Brutal Panda Records on June 26th and is available for pre-order here. If you haven’t already, you can jam another track from the album, a cover of Mazzy Star’s “Ghost Highway,” here.
