Kenny Feinstein: Hurts To Love (2013)
I can't say that Loveless' songs necessarily stand up successfully on their own without the sonic bombast--that's wholly integral to the original record--but if you've already got those tunes etched in your brain, it's fascinating to hear them in this new form, blasts of distortion replaced with the stray cello, the original's ethereal vocals similarly ethereal but more to the forefront. And some of Loveless' more distinctive, poppier tunes, like "When You Sleep" and "Soon," reveal their hidden beauty when played with just some wispy acoustic instruments.
If you're a Loveless fan, definitely check this out, a way to enjoy the original when you're not in the mood to blow out the speakers. You can buy it on Bandcamp.
