Future Islands – Seasons (Waiting On You) (BADBADNOTGOOD Reinterpretation)

Now this is a surprise remix; Toronto jazz fusion trio BBND take on Future Islands’ seminal synth-pop anthem “Seasons (Waiting On You)” – one of the defining singles of 2014 – and rebuilds it with smooth and soulful vintage instrumentation reminiscent of iconic 70’s R&B stars like Bobby Womack. The result is absolutely sublime – much more tactile than I could’ve ever imagined – and BBND continues to impress me, as they have all year. Watch for BBND’s upcoming album with Ghostface Killah and if you missed it, check out their great collaboration with Black Milk.
