DOWNLOAD: Kat Edmonson - Just Like Heaven (The Cure Cover)
I don't own a TV (I say I am against its consumption of one's creative properties) but I binge-watch cable during family holidays (truth is TV is too damn expensive). During one of those said binges, I watched the whole damn season 1 of United States of Tara (I heart Diablo Cody*), within which fluttered a euphoric track, "Lucky," by Kat Edmonson. A few Googles and a handful of stalk emails later, I corroborated her 'next big thing' status and got us a track.
With "Just Like Heaven," Edmonson has the balls to take a well-known Cure song and completely deconstruct it into mellow purring-on-top-a-piano bossa nova jazz lick. On upcoming full-length debut, Take To The Sky, she gives the same swift, smooth makeover to Cole Porter’s “Just One of Those Things,” Carole King’s “One Fine Day,” and John Lennon’s “(Just Like) Starting Over.” In a word, it's delicious.
* Favorite Diablo Cody music quote: “Booty rap is the nectar of life. I hate that shit the cool people listen to.”
