El May :: "Pleasant Experience" [Small Black cover]

The resplendent El May offers up a free cover of the drowned in reverb single, "Pleasant Experience" from chill-wave purveyors, Small Black. This version, substantially cleaned up, like a close shave and a clean shirt, rings with plinking keyboard chords and El May's haunting, detached vocals. The melody, at once listless and catchy, sticks to the hippo-campus with adhesive, sing-song qualities modulating between only a few pitches, exactly the type of refrain we are so hard-wired to enjoy.
