Who knew that a modest label in Connecticut would be releasing one of the best tribute albums ever? Indie darlings past and present come together to repaint the mood swinging lyrics and remix the eternal sunshine of The Cure hits. There's a little room for nostalgia but more than enough space to swoon and dance. The Submarines, The Brunettes and Joy Zipper go for the addictive riff of boy-girl harmonies; The Wedding Present and Kitty Karlyle let the guitars rip happy. Cassettes Won't Listen flirt complete with hand claps, winking: Let's go to bed. Devics take on "Catch" and Elizabeth Harper & The Matinee's "Pictures of You" are simply heart melting, knee-buckling. A little giddy, a little regretful. The Cure's music is an inevitable soundtrack to those of us who grew up in the 80s and well into the 90s. Heartbreak is the reason, music is the celebration.

Available in Odyssey Records, P350.00.
