Phoenix: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (Remix Collection)

I am so happy for Phoenix – after years of putting out amazing music they have finally received the recognition and respect they deserve. And now there is is proof by having all their contemporary musical peers remix / re-vision their music. Genius business model – that is genuine, sincere, and just a great way to showcase the depth of their music. Looking forward to the Two Doors Cinema Club, 25 Hours a Day, and Boombass remixes.

I have never been a fan of Animal Collective – interesting take on this epic journey of a tune. Animal Collective turns the song into a meditative, Indian sounding tune with Thomas Mars’ vocals looped over like a mantra over some tabla sounding percussion.

David Byrne digs Vampire Weekend
Oh, and I totally enjoy David Byrne’s subtle dissing of Animal Collective.
“Playing” mainly consisted of pushing faders up and down. To be fair, two of the three guys took turns singing, though I couldn’t make out any of the words; so yes, there was more to focus on than just faders moving.”
Now that is how a gentlemen drinks his haterade.

Vampire Weekend – Mansard Roof
Vampire Weekend has often been compared to the Talking Heads so no wonder why he likes their sound.

Talking Heads – Born Under the Punches (The Heat Goes On)
Adrian Belew from King Crimson plays lead guitar on this track.

Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)
This Talking Heads track is one of my top 10 fav songs of all time.
