Illogic and Blockhead – two hip-hop mainstays from Columbus, Ohio, and New York City, respectively – will release their first collaborative LP, Capture the Sun, April 16th on Man Bites Dog Records. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to RJD2's wonked out, lurching reworking of "Live From the Horizon," the kind of cut Illogic says comes "when close friends treat you like crap for a while . . . Blueprint told me most great art can't exist without pain." Of the remix itself, Blockhead added: "I was really excited with the direction RJ took the remix. It's cool when someone flips the entire vibe of a song on its back, 'cause it basically feels like creating an entire new song."

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
