Girls Are Short & Cassius

Check this great remix that I just rediscovered today as my iPod was on shuffle. It is a remix of Death from Above 1979 R.I.P. , by Girls are Short aka ALP, 1/2 of MSTRKRFT. It is a totally paying homage to French Filter House. Note the psuedo- Stardust guitar part.

Death from Above 1979 – Romantic Rights (Girls are Short Remix)

I also just started listening to Cassius today and just found out that they are now a band. After being on the French scene for years as an influential French duo they decided to acoustify and translate their songs into the rock and roll world. Pharrell is boys with them so that gives them some street cred as well as having Ghostface make an appearence on their 2nd album, Au Reve. Here is a track from their album 1999.
