Stream: Short Stories – “On The Way” & “Let It Go”

January 7, 2013 1 comment

While marc is trying to reassure everyone that Sampha is not breaking up with SBTRKT, I’m here to hurt your little hearts again! Short Stories is made up of our boy Sampha and Koreless (you might recognize him from collabs with Jacques Greene). Anyways, that was then and Short Stories is now.

“On the Way” is the second track we’re hearing from the power duo, listen to the prior release “Let It Go,” below. Judging from these two outputs, I’d say the pair is definitely on to something–and I am just so happy to hear Sampha croon all over the place again. “On The Way” keeps you interested with a nice blend of drippy beats, the vocals of Sampha in addition to some mystery robots, and the romantic rhythm of a xylophone. “Let It Go” shares the hypnotizing vibe that “On The Way” works with although, I believe I’m only hearing little tidbits of Sampha in it. BUT, it’s still nice.

“On The Way” & “Let It Go” will be released officially by Young Turks on January 24th.
