Telephoned are Fool’s Gold producer Sammy Bananas and singer Maggie Horn. They’ve released a couple mixtapes of “cover-ups,” their versions of others artists’ songs. Duh. Anyway today they put out their new mixtape Good Call with their versions of Nicki Minaj, Twin Shadow, Best Coast, Kanye West and a lot more. Download it for free here or listen below.

3559697887_04d1625f88_oI’ve mostly avoided posting anything on Passion Pit, mostly because it took me awhile to get into them. Guess I missed the Chunk of Change boat, but hopped on as soon as I heard stuff from their full length Manners.

Anyway, you’ve heard this song a couple different ways, from the overly emotional “is this the way I’ll always be” original, to the funky bassline of Calvin Harris’s remix, the Burns one, the Wallpaper. one, etc. etc. Hear Fool’s Gold Records’ Sammy Bananas take on it now, which feels like it could’ve been thudding on dancefloors in the mid-90’s.If you’ve been previously turned off by the singer’s helium-induced vocals, you’ll be in for a nice surprise on this one.
