Hello, Shufflers! Today’s SOTD comes from New York group School of Seven Bells, throwing down an ethereal version of Lil Wayne’s track “How To Love” (listen to the original here).
Although the the rapper’s version definitely showcases the softer side of the artist, the shoegaze-electronic duo surpasses even that with their plush synths and whispery vocals. The melody is infinitely deep, and Alejandra Deheza’s clean voice gracefully compliments the realistic tone of Lil Wayne’s lyrics. The track is very JJ-esque in their dreamy take on hip-hop, something that is always a win in my book.
And lest I forget the best part, it’s available from self-titled mag for free download here.
