Video: Rogue Wave covers Depeche Mode’s ‘Shake the Disease’ live for KCRW radio

One of our devoted readers just tipped us to this gem: indie-pop act Rogue Wave covering Depeche Mode’s 1985 single “Shake the Disease” live in KCRW’s studio Thursday for the station’s cornerstone show “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” It’s a stellar take on a beloved song, a hushed performance with acoustic and electric guitars, piano and brushed drums. Check it out above.
