Top 5 Indie Remixes From The Past Week
A lot of banging indie remixes have ripping their way through the blogosphere this week. BitCandy have decided to pick out five of their favorites on our blogs on music -- check um out below.
Diplo & Lunice remix: Julianna Barwick's 'Vow'
Julianna Barwick revisited tracks from her ethereal February debut, 'The Magic Place,' with remix EP, 'The Matrimony Remixes,' released on October 4th via Asthmatic Kitty. Stream Diplo & Lunice's contribution, the dreamy re-imagination of 'didn't think it could get any dreamier' album highlight, 'Vow,' below.
The Naked and the Famous remix: Unknown Mortal Orchestra's 'Ffunny Ffrends'
The Naked and the Famous have taken Unknown Mortal Orchestra's McCartney-funk track, 'Ffunny Ffrends,' and fired it into a whole new distorted realm of mosh this week. Rad.
The Weeknd remixes: Florence and the Machine's 'Shake it Out'
The Weeknd shoves the overwhelming operatics of Florence and Machine's 'Shake it Out' through a bunch of distancing filters, resulting in an eerily pacifying re-imagination (which I actually prefer to the original, soz Flo).
SBTRK remixes: Radiohead's 'Lotus Flower'
On October 10th, Radiohead will release 'TKOL RMX 12345,' a remix LP boasting a bunch of A-star producers' reinterpretations of tracks from 'The King of Limbs.' The entire album is currently available to stream over at The Hype Machine. Meanwhile, check out BitCandy's favorite, SBTRK's stripped-back take on 'Lotus Flower,' below.
A-Trak remixes: The Rapture's 'How Deep Is Your Love'
Admittedly, BitCandy were not all that down with The Rapture's latest LP, 'In The Grace Of Your Love,' though Italo-dance track, 'How Deep Is Your Love,' was one of the more bearable of moments. This week, A-Trak has transformed the song into a pretty sterling slice of dance-floor ricocheting, dirty alt- house (in remembrance of the late DJ Mehdi). Stream it below.
