The Horrors – “Your Love” (Frankie Knuckles Cover)

The Horrors are basically a psychedelic synths-and-guitars band, but they’re also the sort of band who gleefully defies categorization. And as it turns out, they’re the type of band who can knock out an awesome cover of a Chicago house classic at will. The Chicago house music originator Frankie Knuckles died a few weeks ago, and as a way of paying tribute, the Horrors covered his classic 1987 Jamie Principle collaboration “Your Love” during a recent BBC session. (The song should be familiar even to contemporary British listeners. In the wake of Knuckles’ death, it climbed back into the UK’s top 40, which is a very cool thing on the UK’s part.) With their version of the song, the Horrors turn the song into a spacey rock drone. Below, listen to the Horrors’ whole live-in-studio session; the “Your Love” cover starts around the 18:00 mark
