Memoryhouse - 'Lately'

Mmemoryhouse's 'lately (deuxieme)' is built around a smaple taken from Jon Brion's score to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind . For me, when you borrow a sample from a brilliant score to a brilliant film, you've put pressure on yourself to create something at least as good as the source material. In this case Memoryhouse live up to the expectation. This song has slowly grown on me and there are enough things that make this song memoryhouse-ish sans the Brion sample to earn the chance to reference such brilliant source material. 'Lately' really taps into the more melancholic side of what makes a film like ESOTSM work. There is something dreamy about that film, and dreamy is what Memoryhouse does best.
