Cat Power, "Wonderwall" [Oasis Cover]
Does Chan Marhsall have a brother? And if she does, do they fight? Did she ever throw him out of the band? Are they hooligans? Tell me they're hooligans.
Bloc Party, "Ion Square" [Joel's Bright Light Don't Bore Me Yet Version]
Bloc Party with the bright lights low — a smooth, simmering reinvention of "Ion Square" that shoves its ragged, beating heart to the fore.
Feist, "Sea Lion Woman" [Chromeo Remix]
This, clearly, is a curious combination: Chromeo takes Leslie to the disco, putting an elastic disco beat at the bottom of her lilting folk.
Metric, "Help, I'm Alive" [Twelves Remix]
And speaking of disco: Metric in the 70s, a slow, percolating dance groove topped by Emily Haines' tiny, yearning voice.
Royksopp, "The Girl & the Robot" [Chateau Marmot Remix]
Robot rock: Robyn gets fiercy and fiery over this blocky, blippy reinvention of a Royksopp song about woman/robot romance.
