"It’s an ominous, beautiful, creepy, and euphoric, and it was a massively depressing track to release as a single to begin with, but Planet B’s version is a lo-fi screamer that significantly ups the ante on the song’s bleakness, stripping it of its drug-high euphoria and leaving in its place a harrowing withdrawal."
Planet B has teamed up with Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner for the "Love Oakland" benefit compilation, covering Depeche Mode's "Never Let Me Down Again." Read a review of and listen to the cover, via Dangerous Minds, here.
