It’s been a minute since the last Telephoned release, with producer Sammy Bananas and singer Maggie Horn charting their own solo courses throughout the musical universe. But the two have linked back up for Maggie’s first solo EP, Never/Know, which you can download now on her Soundcloud! Perfect afternoon vibes, check it out then revisit the two FG Telephoned EPs (streaming after the jump) to keep your pop buzz going thru the night.
Following up last weekend’s crazy Danny Brown performance, you can catch even more Fools performing atop Uniqlo’s mobile TruckShop in NYC this Saturday (4/13). Head over to Gansevoort Plaza (Gansevoort St and 9th Ave) to catch a live performance by World’s Fair and DJ sets from Party Supplies, Nick Hook and Telephoned. Find out more about the free hangout at uniqlo.us/UTfoolsgold.
The free Telephoned EP Singles is the duo’s grunge valentine, covering cuts from Cameron Crowe’s soundtrack over Ryan Hemsworth beats. Sammy and Maggie turned Seattle rockers into R&B slow jams in the process (even CC himself approves, tweeting at Telephoned to do “Dyslexic Heart” and “State Of Love And Trust” next!) and now they’ve dropped a video for their take on Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You” (put together by our own Josh Wehle).
