13 Most Beautiful: Songs For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests

iTunes Review

Among the vast film works of Andy Warhol are hundreds of “screen tests,” which weren’t really screen tests at all but rather short, mostly still, black-and- white portraits focusing closely — sometimes uncomfortably — on one subject. Dean Wareham and partner/wife Britta Phillips were tagged by the Warhol Museum to score music for 13 of these shorts, and as Wareham was a founder of the Velvets-influenced Galaxie 500 (and later Luna), the match seems pre-ordained. Choosing true Factory participants (they selected Edie Sedgwick, Lou Reed, Nico, and Ingrid Superstar among others), the music evolved into a live, touring event (with film), and into this audio set which includes remixes of eight tunes. The project includes original tracks, a few re-worked Luna tunes (e.g., “Ann Buchanan Theme” is “Singer Sing” minus the lyrics), and two covers, Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep it With Mine” plus the Velvets’ relatively unknown “Not a Young Man Anymore.” As with the images themselves (you can find most online), there is both sadness and beauty portrayed here, which speaks to the enduring legacy of one of America’s greatest pop artists.

belle & sebastian made love to the 1972 velvet underground - then had roger waters deliver the baby, and hired thom yorke as the live-in nanny.

the rest are just plain refreshingly, tastefully, beautiful.

Great

This album is filled with gorgeous music. I've been listening to it for about a year now, and take a new appreciation from it every time.

While working on a solo album in 2003, songwriter Dean Wareham -- the founder of Galaxie 500 and Luna -- reached out to Luna bandmate Britta Phillips for help. The two soon formed their own duo, sketching out a melodic, sexy sound that took its cues from Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazlewood. They doubled their efforts after Luna broke up in 2005 and married each other one year later, all the while continuing to tour and release new material. Dean Wareham was born in 1963 in the city of Wellington,...
