And the beat goes on and on and on and on.

Today’s Emo: Rome / Phoenix (Neighbours remix w/ Devendra Banhart)

‘I thought I couldn’t do this without you / single in this bed somewhere / ashes til it fall fall falls’

Last week I posted a song from a new band that sounds just like Phoenix, this week it is a sweet remix of my favorite Phoenix song. Phoenix, are you out there? Please?

In the meantime, digging this drawn out, slowed down version of Rome featured on the How to Make it in America soundtrack and featuring slivers of Devendra Banhart. Like most good remixes, it has me hitting repeat and then eagerly revisiting the original for another go. To position the fall of a relationship against the fall of an Empire is a pretty lofty comparison, which makes the song all the more gripping. Rome Rome Rome. #emo

Today’s Untz: Holidays / Miami Horror (Lenno & Jesse Oliver remix)

‘I don’t know just where you came from but I need you now’

Crank up the speakers and let’s make it through Wednesday with this playful little remix of one of Miami Horror’s biggest tracks, brought to us by Finnish sixteen year old Lenno and his pal Jesse. It is almost too tasty for a midweek post because it has me prematurely pining for Friday. Hold tight, listen loud, coffee. #untz
