Pure Bathing Culture - "Wildest Moments" (Jessie Ware cover)

Pure Bathing Culture

The Portland duo Pure Bathing Culture released one of 2013's best overlooked records, Moon Tides - and if you slept on them, now might be a good time to make amends. Start with their brand-new cover of Jessie Ware's "Wildest Moments" (yes!), in which frontwoman Sarah Versprille doesn't try to go for Ware's diva status, rather sticking to the bewitching, Kate Bush-ian incantation that makes her performance on Moon Tides so special. Meanwhile, the background instrumentals take on a vibe a bit more germane to Twin Peaks' Roadhouse bar than a London club. You know an excellent cover when the artist manages to make the song their own - this is an excellent cover. Check it out.
