Cocosuma Remixed by Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya
Cocosuma (MySpace) is a Parisian trio that plays psych-lo-fi-pop or Charles Gainsbourg-meets-the Beach Boys-styled ballad-y pop tunes. They're quite a lot of fun, but you might already know that since I wrote about them a year ago!
Anyway -- since it's in vogue right now to get remixed by BBBD's favorite spazzy group/happy hardcore outfit/alien life form, Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya, Cocosuma did it, too ... with pretty solid results, actually. Contrary to what normally happens when BBYYY get their hands on a song for remixing, they didn't complete destroy and turn inside out the original song. In fact, the BBYYY remix of "Charlotte's On Fire" is actually ... pretty! BBYYY added distorted, heavy drums, a few synthetic flutters, and added reverb, but in the end, they didn't skew things too severely and gave the song a bright new spin that's great.
