THE HOLY HOUR | A Tribute to The Cure
“The Holy Hour” finds 10 DIY groups, from Gathered Ghosts to Setting Sun, covering 10 classic Cure tracks. Some of the bands stick to the script, others change it up, and yet others keep the basic foundation of the song while putting their own stamp on it. Check out a couple of my favorites Cure cuts, “Just Like Heaven” by Ghost Animal, and “Close To Me” performed by Vacation: “I’ve waited hours for this / I’ve made myself so sick / I wish I’d stayed asleep today / I never thought this day would end / I never thought tonight could ever be / This close to me.” “The Holy Hour” was posted on soundcloud, thanks to Universal Electricity, as a gift to The Cure fans. — David D.
