Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes (Dam-Funk Remix)



"Summertime Clothes" is playful enough as it is, with sweet lyrics and a dizzy beat, but Dam-Funk makes it ten times more so with squiggly synth and classic remix-groove drums. What I most appreciate about this remix is how it doesn’t mess with the lovely story Dave Portner’s lyrics tell, only adding elements to make it more joyous, lighthearted, and ecstatic. Particularly over the “Just you, just you, just you, just you” at the end, the waves of sound and drums ease the song off into the ether like the wind’s blowing it away.
