Australian production duo Parachute Youth give a deep house spin to Foals' "My Number" on this extended version of the English band's track. The remix isn't a far cry from the original, at least not initially: singer Yannis Philippakis' subdued vocals are left intact, but then the track builds to grand, measured synth strokes that accentuate the hook. The song even skirts into chiptune territory with the catchy blips in the latter half.  

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

The original song is on Foals' most recent album, Holy Fire.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
