Hear Hiss Golden Messenger cover Led Zeppelin for a Physical Graffiti tribute

40 years ago yesterday, Led Zeppelin released its sixth LP, Physical Graffiti, an extra-special culmination of the titanic band's broad abilities. The London-based music magazine MOJO assembled a track-by-track tribute CD as a companion for its April issue, of which Zeppelin graces the cover.

Alongside the likes of Laura Marling, Sun Kil Moon and Blackberry Smoke, Durham's Hiss Golden Messenger handles "Black Country Woman." True to form, Hiss Golden Messenger's take on "Black Country Woman" is mellow and warm, softening the edges of Robert Plant's wail for a soulful take that could sit comfortably among Haw or Lateness of Dancers. Mandolin Orange's Andrew Marlin also joins the HGM crew for "Black Country Woman" on—what else?—mandolin. You can stream the track below.

And while the CD comes free with the purchase of MOJO (which you can usually find at most book shops), you can also buy a copy of the tribute on vinyl.
