Hal Wilner produced tribute to Marc Bolan & T. Rex, featuring a wide variety of artists and styles. Wilner was also said to be working on a documentary but died in 2020 after assembling the album. The film was made by Ethan Silverman as one that “Celebrates the life and work of glam rock pioneer Marc Bolan while portraying a behind-the-scenes look at the album of the same name.”

Official UK Trailer for AngelHeaded Hipster, to be released 22nd September.

The album itself includes Nick Cave doing “Cosmic Dancer,” Lucinda Williams “Life’s a Gas,” Emily Haines “Ballrooms of Mars,” and Father John Misty doing “Main Man.” Some hit and miss, as such collections are, but a great set of songs showcasing the range of influence Bolan and T. Rex had.
