“Entertainment” is shaping up to be Phoenix’s biggest single yet – it’s getting a ton of radio airplay and remixes from across the board, including this one from Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth. It’s a fantastic new take on the song: Longstreth functionally turns it into a Dirty Projectors track (we just wish Amber Coffman and Haley Dekle had provided some vocals) with driving, sexy percussion and bass tones and shifted, edited vocals and synth sounds, but with Thomas Mars‘ stunning vocal line intact. Check it out.
