The Saxophones: Just You

Oakland based husband and wife folk duo The Saxophones have recorded a gentle over of Just You, the stand-out from Twin Peaks written by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti.

Alexi Erenkov (guitar, vocals, saxophone, Crumar synthesizer) and Alison Alderdice (percussion, vocals) did some tweaking for this one, most notably fiddling with the speed if a Teac 2340 reel-to-reel that was used to record the saxophone parts. By doing so an alto saxophone can emulate a baritone quite well. The vocals are even more intense and soothing than the original. The song ends rather abruptly, urging the listener to play it again.

Just You will be available as the B-side of a 7" single thru UK label Full Time Hobby. The A-side is their original Aloha. Pre-order here. Release date: February 2.
