Tegan and Sara’s super-poppy new record Heartthrob will likely spawn a bevy of awesome remixes, but this one of killer single “Closer,” from Yeasayer, is setting the bar pretty high – they shift the track’s bubblegum quality down a few notches, layering the Quin sisters’ fun, flirty vocals over a maximalist, undulating electronic soundscape, complete with skittering drum machines and the band’s trademark wandering basslines and otherworldly sounds. We’re particularly loving the different world they take the track into toward its last third. Check it out.

Reviews

Kelis’ sixth and finest LP is not the gastronomic concept album suggested by its title. Food is instead a feast of sweaty funk grooves and impeccable soul melodies, consistently satisfying and often fabulous.
