So it turns out Brooklyn is all over Gotye’s new single, “Eyes Wide Open” and we’re pretty much on board with that. Yesterday we heard existential dance rock purveyors Yeasayer take a crack at the drama-filled original and essentially turn it into a slinky extension of the sort of stuff they’ve been putting out lately. And today we get Tanlines’ own remix, presumably made a couple of blocks away from Yeasayer’s.

There’s a warmth and serenity on Tanline’s mix that “Eyes Wide Open” desperately needed. (It certainly helps that Gotye’s voice shines in this type of tranqual, one-with-nature environment.) We recommend you play this the next time you feel like dramatically floating down a calm lake or something.

Plus, hear none other than Fucked Up’s 17-minute Italian opera.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
