In my description of Kimbra's utterly weird single "90s Music" I noted that it was "a bit erratic," which is somewhat of an understatement. I mean, even the music video makes Lady Gaga look normal. And while remixes usually intensify a song's unusual demeanor, the new reworking by DJ Shadow and Salva make it sound like an early Sleigh Bells song. Mind you, it's still unorthodox - there's a ton of explosive hip hop beats involved - just not in the way Kimbra originally intended. Hear it below, it's a rather solid reinterpretation. Kimbra's new album, the Golden Echo, drops on August 18th via Warner. Guest appearances will include Flying Lotus, Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors, Matt Bellamy of Muse, and John Legend.
