Like Bowie Before Them, Globus is “Afraid of Americans”

Yoav Goren is a name you may not know, but you’ve certainly heard his music in huge film franchises like Spiderman, X-Men, and Harry Potter. On his latest album for his current rock project Globus, Goren is joined by an ensemble cast of stellar musicians to create a big, cinematic sound. With 17 tracks, including an incredible pair of cover songs, Globus’s Cinematica is an album not to be missed.

For this Gen X/Millennial cusper, a fantastic cover of a favorite 90s alternative track is just what the doctor ordered on this Monday morning. Thanks to Globus, that’s exactly what we’ve got in a fantastic, cinematic cover of the neo-classic Bowie/Reznor collab, “I’m Afraid Of Americans”.

Making the song all their own, Globus takes the in-your-face single from the late great post-modern rock hero and the industrial music maestro, adds their own backdrop and spin, and produces a track that honors the song’s legacy while giving fans something fresh.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
