Friendly Fires Remixed
Friendly Fires is what would happen if you combined fruity disco dance music with sharp and clean post-punk. A fantastic sound ... one that's instantly hooky, warm, and summery in cases, yet really to-the-point as well. No ridiculous guitar solos, no lengthy drum fills, no nonsense. "Paris" is a wonderful song, but really, all the British trio's tunes are ...
"On Board" is a funkier, LCD Soundsystem-inspired that was just remixed by Nic Nell, a London casio-obsessed singer/songwriter/DJ of sorts. Everything he makes on his own sounds introspective and a little tense, offset by jumpy drum machine generated beats and spastic melodies. I sort of like the stuff. Anyway, like I said, he just did a remix for Friendly Fire's "On Board" and it's pretty jumpy and glitchy, but that sultry bass line keeps the thing going real strong.
