Listen to 'At Home (Passion Pit Remix)':

Last year, Spanish/British electro group Crystal Fighters saw the U.S. release of their debut album Star of Love, and on September 25th, they'll release the remixes collection of that record, featuring reworks from the likes of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Delta Heavy and this version of "At Home," from Boston's Passion Pit.

"We Crystal Fighters met the guys from Passion Pit over a delicious buffet lunch at Lowlands Festival 2009, one of biggest festivals in the Netherlands," said Crystal Fighters' Sebastian Pringle. "We love their band and they are very cool. We ended up watching a bit of the Prodigy together and then went our separate ways, so we couldn't have been more excited all these years later that they agreed to do a remix of our song 'At Home.' The mix they have come up with is fantastic and certainly the Passion Pit and Crystal Fighters sounds mixed together makes for a smooth and delicious cocktail for you all to enjoy."

“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."
