Dystimulation

Music and other modern musings

Disco Disco Dancer

Unlike most of the blogging community, I’ve not fallen in love with the Golden Filter. Recently, the NYC duo’s track, Thunderbird, and its accompanying video recieved rave reviews throughout the blogosphere but still, I felt little, if any excitement by its hype. I wouldn’t dare deny them the successes of their hard work or belittle their innovative style and production skills; in fact, they’ve come out with some pretty good, though generally safe and mellow, remixes of hits like Cut Copy‘s, Far Away, and Little Boots‘, New in Town (I especially like the piano stint towards the end). I’ve just never really been moved by any of their originals (…yet).

The Golden Filter’s take on O Children’s dark indie track, Disco Disco Dancer, elevates the song’s original tribal sound without making it cheesy and provides the track with a more uplifting sound as it progresses. Two Thumbs up.
