Even though I've given them some love, I don't feel like I've given Ra Ra Riot the love they deserve on PMA. "Ghost Under Rocks" is made up of  everything I loved about Ra Ra Riot's debut. The life affirming air of it all, the dirge-esque feel of the lyrics; almost like a memorial to a lost friend, or brooding ovation to the people who have always been there through thick and thin.

All this is taken to the next level on this captivating remix. When I told you guys to watch out for Passion Pit in 2009 (just in case you missed their single in late 2008), I wasn't kidding. This is just a taste of the monsterous and magical things you can expect from them on their debut LP. And really, if you don't like this, you need to get new ears, pronto.

Come and grab the remix, you know you want to...
