These are some things I find amusing.
Phoenix is a band that I love, and definitely don’t listen to often enough. (Currently #9 in the last 6 months on last.fm.)
Their album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix released in 2009 was awesome and Rome is one of my favorite songs on the album. This is a great remix.
Air - “Sing Sang Sung (Black Moth Super Rainbow Remix)”
I’ve had this in my to-post queue for longer than I can remember, and can probably come up with 100 slacktastic reasons why I haven’t posted it yet. And the only reason I hadn’t just given up and deleted it without ever posting it is because, well, it’s really good.
Air tends to have a certain delicateness to their music, where BMSR tend to be anything but delicate. Apparently, though, when you let BMSR remix an Air track, they manage to take the original and turn it into an almost completely different song that somehow still feels at once like both an Air song and a BMSR song. Now that’s a good remix.
I used to listen to a lot of Air. Maybe I should revisit them. Great remix!
