APRIL 27, 2009
...AND MORE NEW STUFF
A little something for the hipsters. People ask me (admittedly, with increasing rarity) why I make the mashups I do, and my answer is usually "d) all of the above." Sometimes I'm like, "Man that Lady Gaga song is mega and I need a rework to play out at teh klubz," sometimes a combo comes at me like an, er, bolt of blue (in fact, that old "Bizarre Love Triangle" thing was like that), usually while I'm tootling around on the motorcycle. Other times, perhaps less often, I just really like a song and decide I need to muck around with it, Party Ben style. So, here's one of those.

Bat for Lashes

Bat for Lashes vs. Shawn Christopher / Egostereo
"Another Sleepless Night Alone"

How great is Bat for Lashes' new album, Two Suns? Maybe I'm a total girl (maybe!) but I really identified, lyrically, with "What's a Girl to Do," and Natasha's really hit the nail on the head again with "Sleep Alone." Sigh. But more than anything, the song's hypnotic rhythm cries out for a trance-y remix. Of course I'm too lazy to go and make my own beats, so I just go looking for something in the same key, and I remember Egostereo's chilly remix of the Shawn Christopher classic "Another Sleepless Night," which turns out to also have a pretty dumbfounding lyrical similarity as well. Bonus! This may not be for everybody but it actually really pleases me, the way it turned out, which happens like never, so that's something.
