I've felt a little allergic to the word "sample" lately, like typing out the building block of a million songs again is blah and routine, but Italy's Indian Wells are forcing my hand with this gem, off their Night Drops LP out now via Bad Panda. "Wimbledon 1980" comes with a finely-collaged video by Valentina Dell'Aquila that's as compelling as the finely-collaged track, together bouncing back-and-forth visual and audio samples pulled from the iconic tennis championship. It's very weird and super impressive. Takako Minekawa had a track that sampled ping-pong, and I swear there's a possibly-Swedish hip-hop song that does, too. Anybody know it?
