Upon listening to Ra Ra Riot's remix of Freelance Whales' “Hannah,” from last year's triumphant Weathervanes, you would think it's produced by Discovery (Ra Ra frontman Wes Miles' side project with Vampire Weekend producer Rostam Batmanglij). This is due to the conspicuous similarities in swivelling synthesizers, fun electro-pop flavour and the overall production.
Ra Ra Riot are one of five bands that rework Whales on a Benefit For Japan EP, all of the proceeds of which are going to the Japan relief fund. Other outfits that contribute include MNDR, The Antlers, and Passion Pit. Check out the remix of “Hannah” below; get the EP and donate here.
