When Saints Go Machine "Let Me Love You For Tonight"
Danish group When Saints Go Machine (pictured above) continue to tease the listening pubic with the prospect of their 2011 debut album for !K7, having given XLR8R the title track to their Fail Forever EP and a dOP remix of the track to boot. This time around, the handsome foursome has offered up something that at first seemed unexpected—a cover of the Kariya's 1988 rave classic, "Let Me Love You For Tonight." Stripping the original of its ravetasticness, When Saints Go Machine keep the song sexed up, but put it in the bedroom instead of on the dancefloor. It might seem like an unusual song to cover, but given the band's clear love of electronic music essentials—we can't help but notice the Arthur Russell similarities yet again—maybe their song choice wasn't so unexpected after all.
