Aural Fix 4/30/2010: Peter Gabriel and Bon Iver Scratch Each Others' Backs

Peter Gabriel promised a mutual back scratching with his latest release, Scratch My Back (March 2), a compilation of covers from Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Paul Simon, Lou Reed, Magnetic Fields, etc. Justin Vernon (a.k.a. Bon Iver) took him up on the offer: Gabriel covered Bon Iver's "Flume," and Bon Iver covered Gabriel's "Come Talk to Me."

You can listen to what each has done with the other's track below. Both covers are also available as a split 7".
