Amazing cover of Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream" from Neneh Cherry & The Thing. With the original being pretty much perfect, creating a convincing cover version would seem a daunting task (Bruce Springsteen couldn't do it), but Neneh and The Thing pull it off with flying colors with an assist from Four Tet on the remix. Mr. Hebden's stomping, chime-driven house riddim is the perfect match to Neneh's delicate, emotive vocals. The result is something you'll have on repeat for sure. On the flip, Nordic disco duo Lindstrom & Prins Thomas transform Neneh & The Thing's "Cashback" into a 9 minute cosmic disco excursion. Recommended.
