Last week we told you about the remix album being put out by Champaign, IL group (and one of my favorites) Headlights.
Well, thanks to Polyvinyl I got my grubby little hands on the album. Some of the new mixes on the album are subtle, yet different. The best example of this is "Cherry Tulips." The feel of the song is still there, but, it's enhanced and and still upbeat with the addition of bongos and a bubbling bass. The remix of "Market Girl" is almost completely different from the addition. It's built around the original keyboard with the addition of electronic drums. Instead of poppy version it's been transformed into an down tempo electro stunner. The reimagining of "School Boys" is also greatness adding some bells, bubbling bass and reverb...awesome.
Basically, if you like Headlights you'll love this album. It reinvents the songs without taking the original emotion out of the songs.
