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 free mixtapes, 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.
