Wait Up (Boots Of Danger) (Passion Pit REMIX)
"Wait Up (Boots Of Danger)" might as well be indie whippersnappers Tokyo Police Club's calling card: barreling rhythms, clanging guitars, a melody you're not forgetting after one listen–these are things the Canadian foursome do very well. Upcoming tourmates Passion Pit, on the other hand, keep things in the computer for their remix, swapping guitar, bass, and drums for their usual merry parade of beats and synths. Both incarnations are below; Tokyo Police Club's new album, Champ, is out June 8 through Mom + Pop.
Die Slow (Tobacco REMIX)
Health’s “Die Slow” really flaunted the band's trademark haunted melodies over spine-breaking beats, so we’re rather impressed with Tobacco’s transmogrifying remix in which slapping on a gritty ‘90s era balm and turning down the screws resulted in this slowish, hip-banging anthem. Ever dance underwater? Try it below. The oft-lauded Crystal Castles collaborators are dropping their next, DISCO2, on June 22 through Lovepump United. Here is Health and Tobacco 2 of our favourites.
