Boomkat Product Review:
I shouldn't go on about this record, I've nothing against Japancakes but regular readers of these pages will already know that 'Loveless' sits at the top of the tree and the idea of a band covering the whole thing just seems a bit, well, foolish. I mean what's the point in covering an entire record like 'Loveless'? It's like the abundance of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' covers - isn't it just totally unnecessary? It's not even that Japancakes take on 'Loveless' is bad, it really isn't - and hearing some of my favourite indie rock tracks of all time recontexualised as shimmering Southern American pop is quite pleasant, but i guess I'm just not a covers person, and I can certainly see why people would want to hear this, especially given the timing with My Bloody Valentine gearing up for a tour and new record (well, sort of new) so give it a try, maybe?
