So this new bootleg by Luis Leon is definitely one of the best possible ways to start the working week!
It’s always tricky approaching classics and doing it with proper justice, but he’s nailed it this time around with a minimalistic retake on one of my favourite Smiths tunes.
Speaking on the SoundCloud…. “We tried to stay true to the original because of course, like fans of “The Smiths”, we don’t want to mess up a true masterpiece and we think that we made it. With the touch of a rhythmic bass line entwined with the classic vocals, this is a track that will stand the test of time.”
This is huge and you can download it for free here.
