This is too amazing to not share.
For those that don’t know what Daytrotter is, its a website that gives you new music each day. They get road-weary bands to come in for a few hours and record a couple songs at their Rock Island, Illinois studio. Intimate. Raw. The quality is usually outstanding. I’ve really enjoyed every Daytrotter Session I’ve heard.
Now take my favorite band, Cursive. Have them do my favorite Cure song and favorite Bowie song and bowl me over. Their cover of Modern Love is going to knock your socks off. Cursive is obviously best at doing Cursive, so The Casualty and What Have I Done? cook too. But the two covers are what’s special here. I’ll never forget what you told me in that bathroom, Tim. You were preaching to the choir.
