On "Hymnals," LA-based quintet Grizfolk make some warm, emotive chamber-rock. But in the hands of the summer's buzziest pop producer, Ryan DeRobertis—bka Saint Pepsi—the song catches a new vibe. DeRoBertis goes easy, mostly—toying with his now-trademark sunny synths and the original's melodic spaciousness to make something that's bright but also steamy; listening to it feels like attending a pool party well after dusk. You can pick up the "Hymnals" 7-inch over at Grizfolk's web store.
