remix time

This isn't an upbeat remix. But there is something about it that struck me. It is almost sounds Plaid-ish at times.

Austra has a sound that is reminiscent of good old Siouxsie & the Banshees. If somehow you live under a rock and haven't heard of Austra, I suggest you listen to the original version, Beat and Pulse first.

They slowed the song down (which was a feat in itself) but I would have thought any remix of the song would be a complete butchery. Yet, it is in this weeks rotation.

To be fair I guess I should also include a Plaid song, since it is even less well known that Austra.

A little tidbit, the first time I heard this song, was a decade ago. I was at Joshua Tree Park in California. It was night, in the desert and the moon was full. Something about the combination of this song and the surreality around me -- made it my favorite Plaid noise.
