Japancakes To Cover Loveless In Its Entirety

Last Friday news came down the wire that Japancakes intends to cover My Bloody Valentine's classic Loveless in its entirety. I just got a chance to listen to the leaked "Only Shallow", and while it's decent, it doesn't seem to really merit much hype. Loveless is such a standout, timeless album: do we really need a cover of it, even if it is a competent one? Moreover, the cover is just too clean: all those bendy synths and guitars are missing. Have a listen:
