Remix-A-Day: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero (MSTRKRFT Remix)


Because we are focusing more on upcoming musical releases around here, new remixes get the short end of the PMA stick, sadly. I am determined to devote one post a day on new remixes, instead of bunching 10+ remixes in bulk. That has become somewhat tacky. Click here to read all of our Remix-A-Day remixes.

This song is not yet cleared for download, but you can stream it below, thanks to IMEEM and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Earlier today we reviewed MSTRKRFT's album, Fist of God, and gave it a middle-of-the-road 5 and a half bulb rating. Needless to say, we weren't very impressed with the new album. The sticky trend continues with their remix of the YYYs' new single, "Zero" (as if it needs more hype). Sadly, MSTRKRFT keep marketing themselves as the poor man's Justice. It's definitely not a good look for the Canadian duo. Hopefully they will shake it off with their future material.

I'll be up front. I didn't like this remix much — mostly for the reasons written above, but also because I hear that Animal Collective remixed the same song. Sorry MSTRKRFT, but you just don't measure up. But before you flick this remix away, take a listen and decide if it you like it

That was something wasn't it? Were you even listening? Or were you still freaking out about Animal Collective remixing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? I'm just as hyped to hear that remix as you are — but we'll just have to wait until it's available. The remix is a b-side on the limited edition "Zero" 7". You can pre-order the single @ Insound (who don't want to give me this as a freebie!). If you're wondering what it will sound like... this might give you an idea.


Some dude that goes by the moniker Radioface mashed up Animal Collective's "My Girls" with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Y Control" a few weeks back. It's sort of a hot mess. I actually hope the "Zero" remix sounds nothing like this.
