Okay so I made up that story, although the lyrics are real. The soft, folksy original, from the late Nick Drake, might sound familiar, as the singer-songwriter/musician was featured on the award-winning Garden State soundtrack. Montreal-based Holobody, comprised of sister brother team Luke and Charlotte Loseth, carry on Drake's memory with a languid experimental electronic/acoustic remix. An underlying groove resonates throughout, reminding me of how, despite our individual sadness, life continues to move on.
This remix comes of off Holobody's debut 6-track EP MTL, released via Bad Panda Records in December 2012. You can check out the EP on Bandcamp and follow the duo on Facebook.
