"Just Like Heaven" by THE CURE is on the very short list of songs that pretty much never get stale, but every now and then it gets a refresher by a young band looking to add their own shine to the '80s modern rock classic.
Here, Boston blip-pop trio STEREO TELESCOPE run it through the synth-cycle on the eve of their tour with some lovely keyboard pixie I've never met before named CASEY DESMOND, which takes them down to Texas for SXSW and back home again on a magical keyboard carpet ride. The live beat parade gets started this Friday at the Magic Room Gallery in Brighton on a dance-tastic electronic-mad bill alongside the aforementioned Desmond, ANDRE OBIN, HERRA TERRA, and DJ DIE YOUNG.
Purchase the Stereo Telly's "Just Like Heaven" cover on iTunes, or just marvel at the pretty colors, blurs, and lights in the video above. We heard the track live at TT The Bear's Place the other night, and it's even lovlier in a live setting. We'll go so far as to say it's the best "Just Like Heaven" cover since Dinosaur Jr. took a noisy turn on it back in the day.
