Gossip Hypnotize on Wankelmut Remix of 'Get a Job' – Song Premiere

German producer reinterprets Portland alt-poppers' club cut

November 19, 2012 9:00 AM ET

With Beth Ditto's unmistakable grace and attitude, Gossip make pop their own, and in this remix of A Joyful Noise track "Get a Job," the bass-heavy club cut gets a clattering reworking from German producer Wankelmut. Though the original drives forward with a pulsating, beating bass and huge thundering thumps, Wankelmut's remix inserts quick click-clacks and a funky low-end groove for a subtle and hypnotic take on the track. Both are big time booty shakers, but while the original slams hard, Wankelmut shakes down.

Wankelmut's remix of "Get A Job" will be on the forthcoming A Joyful Noise RMX EP.

“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.”
