Along with his own exceptionally fun original music (both solo and as half of Telephoned and Fifteenth), Sammy Bananas has been cranking out some of the best bootlegs in the biz for over a decade. Whether reanimating R&B throwbacks or twisting present-day pop into uptempo weapons of dance destruction, Mr Bananas just has a knack for the funk! He always wanted to press some of his biggest boots to vinyl, and now thanks to Kickstarter you can help make it happen! Check the link for full details and info on the different fan packages available.

The free Telephoned EP Singles is the duo’s grunge valentine, covering cuts from Cameron Crowe’s soundtrack over Ryan Hemsworth beats. Sammy and Maggie turned Seattle rockers into R&B slow jams in the process (even CC himself approves, tweeting at Telephoned to do “Dyslexic Heart” and “State Of Love And Trust” next!) and now they’ve dropped a video for their take on Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You” (put together by our own Josh Wehle).
Telephoned play live at Cameo in Brooklyn on Sunday, January 20th, alongside Cookies and Tubetops. Go vibe out with them! And check out Telephoned’s U Don’t Have To Call (more “cover ups,” this time over Clams Casino beats) and their “Last Time” single for even more.
