Sometimes there’s still reason to keep up with vinyl sales. Like when Burial and Four Tet release split 12-inch that we knew nothing about until it’s already sold out. Thank goodness these MP3 things let us hear the music without squeezing one more piece of plastic into our overflowing mail crates. Really helps keep the collector OCD in check. [Found by Tripwire]
When Dan Snaith, aka Caribou, got his old buddy Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, to remix his new single, ‘Melody Day,’ he knew the result would be pretty snazzy – Hebden’s reworks always are. What he probably didn’t expect was a whole new take on the noble art.
