Kissing & Made Up, School of Seven Bells.

Last Record Store Day release; promise. Vagrant's offering came from woozy shoegaze types School of Seven Bells who had a stab at Siouxsie and the Banshees' Kiss Them For Me, stab being the operative word: Alejandra Deheza and Benjamin Curtis hack away the guitars, instead opting for a cut-and-thrust industrial approach that's irrefutably devastating. Unerring on the searing melody of the original take yet unmistakably SVIIB in overall aesthetic, it achieves – at least subjectively – the essential objective of any cover and is consequently a pretty consummate recording.
