mp3: Wild Beasts - "Wanderlust" (The Field remix)

Wild Beasts

"Wanderlust" was our first taste from Wild Beasts' Present Tense, a hulking, minimalist slow-burner haunted by the closing lyric "don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck." Now, you can sample a remix from The Field that takes the song to a totally different place - blissful, shifting ambience, with new sounds gently folded in at every turn, and only a pinch of Hayden Thorpe's severely edited vocals sounding vaguely familiar enough to remind you of the original. Basically, it's not so much a remix as it is a complete reinvention - grab a pair of headphones, turn it up, and bliss out for eight minutes.
