Manchester, UK native Star Slinger throws a spacey, clubby spin on what might be Deerhunter’s best song, “Helicopter,” from September’s Halcyon Digest. He keeps that great skittery clap beat and layers and loops it to bring it up a notch, providing the backbone for a pitch-shifted version Bradford Cox’s incredible vocal performance, used here as another instrument. It’s a weird remix, schizophrenic and scattered, but it’s impossible not to bob your head and listen hard and try to figure it out. Star Slinger’s remix mixtape, available for free download / purchase on his website, also includes reworkings of Small Black and Rollerskaters. Check it out.
