It’s eerie to hear David Bowie singing "We can rise up from this grave" in "American Landfill," which arrives suddenly on "The Turning: Kate’s Diary," a spinoff EP from the soundtrack to "The Turning." Bowie’s voice and imprint are heard throughout the song, which is a ferocious reworking of Kristeen Young’s "Saviour," a duet with Bowie that she wrote and originally released in 2004 on her album, "Breasticles," made with Bowie’s longtime producer, Tony Visconti. Radically reshaped now by Young and the producer Justin Raisen, it veers from jagged, dissonant verses — with electronic percussion and Young’s own dissonant piano — to heroic, glam-anthem choruses and a lofty, string-backed near-finale that comes crashing back down at the end. She’s less hopeful than ever that "You could be my saviour."
