It's only Monday afternoon and, oh my God, we haven't even posted about Neon Indian this week. Mostly because there's nothing new to tell? More than likely.
But, a-ha!, there's this all of a sudden: A couple of new Neon Indian remixes have popped up around the Internet of late--and not remixes where Neon Indian does the re-working like when Alan Palomo remixed the same Grizzly bear song twice.
Rather, these new ones--both of which are ripe for downloading--find the band getting its songs edited by others. Crazy, I know.
Anyway, last week, Stereogum posted a Summer Dregs' remix of Neon Indian's oh-so-delightful slow jam, "Mind, Drips," which is somehow made even more GorillaVsBearcore than before with this remix--an impressive feat no doubt. But I'm more feeling this one posted today by Pasta Primavera, where Afghan Raiders re-edit "Deadbeat Summer". Afghan Raiders' take gives the song a new 8-bit sheen, throws in a little drum and bass, and chops and screws the chorus for good measure.
So get to downloading, Palomosapiens.
