Whoo! Alright - Yeah...Uh Huh, I love getting Simian Mobile Disco remixes, especially when they're reworking one of my new favorite live bands, The Rapture. In case I wasn't clear after Making Time, these guys are simply amazing in concert. Much louder and raging than I ever expected. Not sure that comes across well on the latest album, Pieces Of The People We Love.
Simian Mobile Disco are one of Pound for Pound's favorite remixers, so this seems like a match made in my skinny jeans heaven. Fucking a, this one is devastatingly good. It literally has me bouncing in my chair, ready to go out and fight a fellow bespectacled hipster or play with puppy dogs or kiss and eat cotton candy. The massive bass line is the key, before after the midpoint breakdown. There's also lots of interesting percussion sounds, including what sounds almost like an amplified water drop. This is essential music, grab this and play this for your next party or workout session or sexy time. The dub is just as good, no lyrics and little more muted at times.
