Short Stories- On The Way / Let It Go
Posted by Ben Friedlander
OLD IS NEW AGAIN
Sometimes something is so old that you lose interest in it. That old skateboard sitting around your parent's garage? Man, that shit was cool in high school, you probably wouldn't ever pick it up again, right? Right. But an old Koreless & Sampha tune that we first heard as part of Koreless's stunning Boiler Room live set back in December 2010? That is something that, although it is close to two years old now, is still just as good as it was back then. I'm talking about "Let It Go," the b-side to Koreless (pictured above) and Sampha's forthcoming EP as Short Stories. You know Koreless as the dude that released the effortlessly beautiful "4D" b/w "MTI" 12" for Pictures Music and "Lost In Tokyo" for Jacques Greene's Vase label, while Sampha is known primarily as SBTRKT's main vocal and live collaborator. Together as Short Stories they have two beautiful tracks that will be released on limited 12" vinyl and digital download on January 28th.
