Listening to Kanye’s “Bound 2” off Yeezus, you’d assume that he found an old sample and pitch-shifted it up a shit ton to get it to sound that way. Turns out, he actually pitch-shifted it down. Ponderosa Twins Plus One were actually a group of high-schoolers from Cleveland: two sets of twins, none of whom were named Ponderosa, and a fifth member who went to school with them. I found out about this song from Gianni Lee & Mike Blud’s mixtape of the Yeezus samples, and I’ve been bumping it since. It’s a great old soul song, but with a weird sound that makes it almost creepy – I don’t know if it’s just that the original vinyl was warped somehow, or if it was a conscious choice, but the notes don’t seem quite right. An interesting old cut.
