Roosevelt – “Small Hours” (John Martyn Cover)

By James Rettig / March 17, 2014

Last year, Roosevelt made some noise with his debut EP Elliot, a short collection of Italo-disco songs that emphasized his knack for a good beat. His latest offering takes a step back and shows off a more subdued side in the form of a cover of British singer-songwriter John Martyn’s “Small Hours.” The new version cuts the runtime of the original song in half and makes what’s largely a moody, ambient track into something warm and inviting. Listen below.
