Radiohead Remix / Neutral Milk Hotel Cover

I got two new songs for you to check out tonight - 2 brand new versions of songs you are undoubtedly very familiar with.

The first comes from Spoolwork - the remix project of David Fischoff. You may remember earlier this year I offered a version of Jens Lekman’s “I’m Leaving You (Because I Don’t Love You)” that Spoolwork diced up into something (arguably) even more interesting than the original. Here he is again, taking just the vocal track of Thom Yorke and reimagining the sonic setting entirely. If you dig it head over to the Radiohead remix site and vote for him - hopefully they’re still running the contest.

MP3 :: Reckoner (Spoolwork remix)

Spoolwork is putting together a free mixtape download of these and other remixes he’s been behind, including some by RZA, Erykah Badu, Nico, and Public Enemy - so keep an eye out for that early next year, it should be cool.

The Chairs are a band from Wisconsin who plays a skewed kind of take on Americana and electro-pop. The have a new EP available for free download on their website (out Tuesday 11/18) that features a drastically reworked version of Neutral Milk Hotel’s classic “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea”. Fans of the original would really appreciate this - it sorta sounds like Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide fronting a high school version of Joy Division. I mean that in the nicest way possible.
