If you picked up Pillowtalk's The Come Back EP, you might have noticed that this San Francisco trio has a peculiar yet interesting sound that combines contemporary house elements with that classic American soul that's all over Mayer Hawthorne's music too. So, seeing these two names together you can only think: "YES. Perfect match." A thought that turns out to be true upon listening to it.
Originally already a cover by Hawthorne (of The Festivals, one that stays very true to the original), this version isn't an edit that tries to bend a track into something it wasn't meant to be, but one that adds that little extra bit of punch. And surely no one should mind that the original two minutes as if by magic turned into six and a half minutes of bliss.
PillowTalk's latest EP, 'Far From Heaven' was released about a month ago on Wolf + Lamb, so check that one out if you haven't already...
