Indie + Electronics (Slight Return)

Following on from my previous post and the argument that a splash of electronics adds wonders to many a guitar based tune, here are three more examples that I wanted to put up.

First is the New York New Wave of Interpol a band that I love. Despite many people comparing them to Joy Division, I think they update that sound for the 21st century. Their two albums 'Turn On The Bright Lights' and 'Antics' have been on heavy rotation on my stereo since 2004.

I've chosen two tracks that again have been remixed (this is an electronic blog after all) One adding just a few extra synths plus a re-edit to really make the track take off, and the other a electronic glitchy cut-up which only leaves the barest of the original in the mix.

Interpol - Not Even Jail (Daniel Kessler remix)

This was from the C'mere EP and features four tracks, each one remixed by a member of the band.

The next mix I know very little about because it is not an official release. Velapine Screen is a US producer and I haven't had a chance yet to hear any of his other work, but by judging from this it should be worth a listen. Check out his website for more info, photos, and downloads of his live performances.

Interpol - Untitled (Velapine Screen Remix)

Finally we once again have to bow down in respect for the pioneers. I was wanting to post this earlier but technical problems prevented it. Once more Andrew Weatherall (and Oakenfold when he produced decent records) adds magic to a classic Madchester anthem transforming it from a good record to one dropped by God himself. Hallelujah!
