No you don’t understand how long i’ve had this on repeat guys.
Taking the piano refrain from Get Lucky and teasing it into a slowed down version on reverb-filled keyboards, it invites you to lose interest and attention before brilliantly unleashing the brightest, chirpiest guitar riff onto your ears.
Add to that a groove-tastic bassline circa 2001’s Discovery, it echoes the opulence and funk that Random Access Memories is angling for, all within the first minute and a half while still completely reinventing the song, exactly what a remix is about, and exactly how you should execute a remix.
absolute thumbs up here.
N.B the Sundance Version of Get Lucky is also amazing.

Somehow, it’s like i now immediately understand why I’ve developed this aversion to the terms ‘radio friendly’, ‘pop anthem’ or ‘latest new hit’. In the end i guess I agree with those two quirky french dudes.

I honestly can’t describe how happy Matt & Kim make me sometimes.
As music videos go, this is the most tongue-in-cheek, playful thing i’ve ever seen in terms of visual accompaniment to their songs. And as silly as the rather risque video is, i have to say it takes some dedication to your craft to provide yourselves as the actors in such a music video.
hats off to what is an utterly danceable, groove-inducing track but never far from playful track
Providing you with your daily dose of rebellion, nonchalance and backhanded compliments, James Murphy loudly declares his unfettered need to leave it all behind with the simplest arrangement of basslines and cymbal beats and wailed lyrics.
all the funk, cowbells, attitude and LCD flair in 4 minutes.
“I knew you were low man, but the truth is i was shocked”
Crease your pride, telling lies that you’re not on your own
Watching their, faith in prayers will make you see your bones
The drop in Pyramids, the lament in Bad Religion, the yearning in Forrest Gump.
jeez, this is such a emotionally fraught album…
Absolutely beautiful, and i had completely forgotten about their album releasing in Australia a few days earlier than in the states. (hint; haha the states are missing out, its beautiful)
That slow croon of Oliver Sim flows like treacle over his bass, the off-beat Jamie xx drum beat that uses missing beats like you would use a flourish, and Madley Croft’s yearning voice simmer into that more ‘clubbey’ sound the trio promised, instantly striking itself into the listener’s attention. Its only drawback an ending that feels just ‘there’, but is a tribute to how little you want it to end.
The xx are a 3 piece post-dub, post-RnB, post-everything, all amazing set.
They’re eponymous debut (and absolutely superlative) album ‘XX’ won them the mercury award in 2009 and has seen them achieve widespread fame.
LCD Soundsystem is cooler than you.
Because you’re losing your edge.
And i’m sad because they’re not releasing Shut Up And Play The Hits in Australia.
Desert Island - Haima’s Mix
A great remix. Honest to the original but inherently more different, danceable, and done with flair.
The song promises fantasy in its opening refrain and only expands on it as synth swells and a chorus like echo of Cameron Birds voice pushes through speakers until Haima’s influence shows itself and the beat pushes through your speakers, gently rearranging the high, delicate and carefree melodies towards its own designs until head bopping ensues.
It is nearly impossible to not feel at ease but still in a restless, dancing mood when listening to this.
Architecture In Helsinki are a 5 piece australian indie rock group. This song comes from their 2011 effort ‘Moment Bends’
