Master Song

I recently saw The Master, which has a stellar Jonny Greenwood soundtrack. At some point I was tangentially reminded of this cover of Leonard Cohen's "Master Song" - easily my least favorite cut off of Songs of Leonard Cohen

This version is from Beck's Record Club, an innately hit-or-miss project in which he gathered a group of musicians in a studio to cover an entire album in a day. For Songs of Leonard Cohen, Beck was joined by MGMT, Devendra Banhardt, and a few others.

If you find nothing else of value in it, you must at least make it to the 2 minute mark in order to admire the best use of a Metallica sample EVER.
