Brains behind alt-folk act Former Belle and guitarist of Philadelphia-based indie-pop quartet CRUISR, Bruno Catrambone treats us to a hauntingly serene rendition of Broken Social Scene‘s “Lover’s Spit,” taken from their critically acclaimed You Forgot It In People (2002).

Operating under the alter ego Spirit Haus, a side project the Pennsylvanian musician started in 2014, Catrambone tackles the Canadian collective’s tune, delivering a delicate and mellow take on the song.

Spirit Haus’ “Lover’s Spit” revels in its swirling blend of gently pulsing percussion, swaying orchestral tones and tender keys and synths combination. Catrambone’s dreamy vocals float on above, fueling an emotional tide rivaling that of Kevin Drew‘s, while the song’s lo-fi vibes contribute to the song’s tear-jerking nature.

Catrambone’s airy cover can’t help but drip with a sweet tinge of nostalgia, and although the year is not quite over, has earned itself a spot on my personal Best of 2015.
