The layers of ambiance and the ineffable cool of the originals always make Cure songs a particularly sticky wicket to cover. That’s not stopping a bunch of folks including Bat For Lashes, The Muslims, Kaki King and The Dandy Warhols from trying their hand at it. This track is breathy, darkly shining, and atmospherically lovely.
