Turntable Kitchen, a Seattle-based company that has a variety of delightful deals like a subscription that brings a bag of coffee beans and an exclusive 7” single to your door every month. Their most ingenious offer though is the Sounds Delicious series, a club that releases limited edition records featuring a current artist covering a full album from the past. To date, that has included Ben Gibbard performing all of Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque and Yumi Zouma covering the second Oasis album.

More recently, Turntable Kitchen unveiled a version of The Cure’s sophomore studio work Seventeen Seconds, as interpreted by Frankie Rose and pressed onto a gorgeous piece of blood red vinyl. She and producer/co-conspirator Jorge Elbrecht don’t mess with the formula of these songs much, sticking close to the original arrangements even as they throw a little sunlight and modern synth sounds at them. Somehow it doesn’t deter from the creeping dread and downcast glances that Robert Smith and co. exhibited in 1980. The mood is deepened considerably by the surprisingly great pressing of this record. Rose and Elbrecht’s work comes out full and enrapturing, with her tart vocals cleanly cutting through the mix.
