Today RCRD LBL premiered the debut original track from Telephoned, “Hold Me.” It’s a new progression for the duo of Sammy Bananas and Maggie Horn, an effervescent indie jam that wouldn’t sound out of place next to their signature electronic covers of r&b hits and other poppables (which you’ve heard on their FG EP and freemixtapes, on the road with Chromeo, and at club nights around the world).
The good folks at Scion A/V have pressed this up on limited-edition 7″ vinyl, featuring sleeve art by Mike2600 and backed by a Telephoned cover (but of course!) on the b-side. “Hold Me (Alternate Version)” is a bittersweet gem, turning the dancey original into a delicate, country-flavored acoustic number. Stay tuned to this blawg for details on how to get a physical copy for yourself, meanwhile download both sides of “Hold Me” from these handy RCRD LBL widgets.
In other T’Phoned news, test pressings just came back for their upcoming Scion A/V 7″ single, which you can preview after the jump. And if you’re in Brooklyn, party with them this Wednesday (11/3) at Glasslands with Shout Out Out Out Out and Jacques Renault. Read More
