Through his Devinyl Splits subscription series, which got underway at the beginning of this year, Kevin Devine has been spotlighting musicians he’s become friends with over his decade-plus career in the underground rock scene. In the two installments released so far, Nada Surf frontman Matthew Cawes and Devine covered each other, and Perfect Pussy frontwoman Meredith Graves put out her first-ever solo track. For the upcoming third iteration — out in September — Devine and Tigers Jaw both provide their own takes on songs by the Cure, an essential touchstone band for anyone picking up a guitar today. A few weeks back, we heard Tigers Jaw’s “In Between Days” cover, and now here’s Devine’s interpretation of “Lovesong.” Listen below.
