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.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
