Love Cats: A Tribute to The Cure


From Stereogum (listen to Tancred's cover of 'The Figurehead' on their website):

Love Cats: A Tribute To The Cure is the latest release from Reimagine Music, a label that employs the indie rockers of today to cover the classics. (They’ve also overseen tributes to the Beatles, the Smiths, Uncle Tupelo, and John Vanderslice’s album-length cover of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs.) Artists such as the Hotelier and Dowsing contributed to Love Cats, but the first track to be released is Tancred’s cover of Pornography highlight “The Figurehead.” It’s fascinating to hear the voice behind this year’s brightly energetic Out Of The Garden applying her perspective to such a dark, despairing dirge.

Tracklist:
01 Canopy Climbers – “Friday I’m In Love”
02 The Hotelier – “Doing The Unstuck”
03 Hayley Richman – “Love Song”
04 Dowsing – “Push”
05 Tancred – “The Figurehead”
06 The Crookes – “Boys Don’t Cry”
07 Minipop – “Pictures of You”
08 Grace Kelly – “Love Cats”
09 The Worm Is Green – “Close To Me”
10 Sealions – “In Between Days”
11 Woodpigeon – “Lullaby”
12 The Guessing Game – “Love Song”

Love Cats: A Tribute To The Cure is out 5/13 (Friday the 13th, the press release notes) on Reimagine Music. Pre-order it here.

Update (May 9th, 2016): Pitchfork has posted The Hotelier's cover of 'Doing the Unstuck'.

  5. I don't have an iPhone; will they release it on a CD?

  6. Nope, doesn't look like it's getting a CD pressing. But you can always buy digital and then burn it to a disc.

    2. You can use iTunes on any computer, and then burn it to a CD. Or, ask a friend or family member with a computer to do it for you.

    2. I hate it when I'm ignorant. Which is a lot! That's probably all the damage in which I brain suffered.
