Boston’s Constants Cover Catherine Wheel’s “Strange Fruit”

Boston’s Constants have teased their new album Pasiflora by offering a cover of Catherine Wheel’s “Strange Fruit”. Pasiflora is due out on July 24th, just a few short weeks after, I hope, the Boston Celtics win their 18th NBA championship. [Ed. Note: Sorry, it’s gonna be the Spurs.]

But I digress.

Though “Strange Fruit” won’t appear on Pasiflora, it’s still worth about a thousand listens. The original finds Catherine Wheel at the height of their powers, stirring shimmering guitars into a seething orgasmic frenzy. Constants actually slow down the track just a tad, but, trust me, there’s still sonic juice flowing throughout it. Listen below. It’s good to have it in your head.
