"Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" by Cloud Boat // Model of You (Out 7.15.14 via SpinShop)
Covering The Smiths is fairly commonplace these days, so it’s always a treat when someone does something that sets them apart from the rest. Cloud Boat has done that with their haunting cover of “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want”. The duo keep things fairly tight to the original, instead of reconstructing any major part of the track, instead they’ve slowed it down just a hair and built an atmospheric haze throughout the song which in turn makes it feel like a modern day dream pop hymn. The result is downright hypnotic in it’s beauty. Definitely something that fans of either band should give a shot. Highly recommended.
