Speaking of takes on other artists' songs, it seems as if there's been a recent uptick in remixes around town lately. The best kinds of remixes, too -- the local-on-local variety. And, this week in particular, we've come across two pretty killer examples of such.

Hit the jump for the details. That's right! It's time for another edition of local music news briefs!

  • We've spent plenty of time in 2011 gushing about Heavy Sugar, the latest album from Fort Worth quintet Calhoun, and, in this week's print edition, we stay the course, naming the album to our list of best area releases so far this year (more on that tomorrow). Now, we have yet another reason to talk up the band and their new material: Earlier this week, the band posted a remix of their song "Indian Melody," courtesy of their Fort Worth contemporaries in The Burning Hotels. Whereas Calhoun's original take was a rather driving (yet, somehow, melancholy) take with a few electronic flourishes, this new version, produced by lead Hotel Chance Morgan, turns the song into an all-out electro jam. Give 'er a listen below.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
