Strange Boutique, "The Collection: 1988 – 1994"

Fierce, dynamic post-punk that's got the brittle chill of Siouxsie and the Banshees, the wired eccentricity of Wall of Voodoo, and the glistening melancholia of the Cure. This compilation, The Collection: 1988 – 1994 (sidenote: I found a rare typo in Spotify), is an exhilarating listen and a loving celebration of their short tenure.
