Single Serving: Hayden Thorpe and Jon Hopkins' Summer Creep Out
    • MONDAY, JULY 08, 2013

    Here's a wonderful, yet unexpected cover. Hayden Thorpe, the dramatic, almost operatic front man for UK band Wild Beasts, teamed up with London producer and musician Jon Hopkins to pay homage to "Goodbye Horses"; Q Lazzarus' 1988 single that's probably best remembered set to this scene from The Silence of The Lambs. Hopkins and Thorpe's take is threadbare, scarcely kept afloat by a warm bodied heartbeat, scant drips of piano, Thorpe's captivating leads, and an overall sense of eerie atmosphere. Still, as creepy as it is (trying setting this version to that scene in Silence of The Lambs), the song is exactly what I want my summer to sound like; quiet, contemplative, long, and drawn out. Savor the tiny details below.



    The song was released as a B Side of the reissue of Q Lazzarus' original track digitally and on 12-inch vinyl on Mon Amie Records.
