Sleepyhead Jam

Whilst Francisco was rehearsing for his “Este es” album in 2009, he heard Run Toto Run’s cover version of Passion Pit’s Sleepyhead.  He immediately improvised a jam around the main riff, and the moment is captured on film below.

Francisco would later develop the track into his own full cover version of the song, which you can hear here.  It was only later that we discovered that the riff from Sleepyhead was sampled by Passion Pit from the song “Óró Mo Bháidín” by Mary O’Hara, played on the Celtic harp.
