Othello Woolf is starting to garner a good bit of attention at the moment, and for damn good reason, as demonstrated in his debut single “Stand”, which will be released by the consistently impressive Young & Lost girls on January 18th on oh so pretty white vinyl. It’s pop perfection with a wistful lover’s soul. An LCD Soundsystem-influenced crooner making waves that are uplifting, understated, and undeniably British.
We might not have the original “Stand” MP3 to share with you right now (but you cans till find it over at Transparent, which if you aren’t reading now – you really should be), but we do have a couple of examples of this man’s talents below…
The wonderful Golden Silvers take away none of the original’s vocal beauty, but turn the underlying track into something a littler more distorted and bass heavy.

He then returns the remix favour by giving his touch to the Golden Silvers’ catchy indie ballad “Please Venus”, which he vocodes, adds some slap bass and a melody which sounds like it’s a Hammond organ to take into a whole different world.
