Hall & Oates are experiencing of a sort of renaissance these days, cherished by the middle-aged hipsters that grew up with the bands music as a backdrop. Fans of Halls online series, Live from Daryls House, are already accustomed to hearing contemporary artists put their spin on Hall & Oates classics. The results vary as wildly as you would imagine with guests ranging from the legendary Smokey Robinson to Chromeo, but more often than not, the common ground found playing the H&O songbook is where the magic happens.
But we already know those songs, so lets focus first on the records lone original track, Heard it on the Radio. In the context of the album, it wouldnt be too far of a stretch to assume this was another cover. The Hall & Oates feel is there, complete with references to Kiss On My List and choppy guitar stabs granted, it is more likely a guitar keyboard patch. I can definitely see this track taking residence on many a summer mixtape.
