Phoenix : Entertainment # Dirty Projectors Remix

One of the year’s finest albums – Phoenix‘s Bankrupt! – finally hit the shelves this week, and to celebrate here’s another big-name remix of the record’s lead single “Entertainment”. Following Dinosaur Jr.’s lethargic cover, the diva-led plastic soul of Dev Hynes’ Blood Orange remix and Grizzly Bear‘s bizarrely addictive footwork-flavoured deconstruction, Dirty Projectors frontman Dave Longstreth has turned in a slow-burning version that eschews the original’s “China Girl”-aping riff in favour of thick synths and an 8-bit starburst climax. That one track can spawn so many different interpretations – all of them pretty great – and still leave you wanting to hear more speaks volumes about the multi-faceted quality of Phoenix’s songwriting; compare and contrast below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz.
