It’s been a relatively quiet few years for our favorites The Clientele. The quarantine, however, has brought traces of activity from the British indie-pop band. Over the summer, they released a fantastic version of “Closer” by Shack. For the most recent Bandcamp Friday, they released another fine cover, “Orpheus Beach” by The Go-Betweens. If covers are a gateway to a band’s soul, then this is a Rosetta Stone. Or, perhaps, it’s simply a good band covering another good band. Whatever the case, it’s a fine little offering from a band we’ve loved for two decades.
