We all know very well from brilliant Swedish producer Lindstrøm’s prior collaboration with Say Lou Lou that his bubbly, rippling electronic wizardry works really well with sugary, vibrant pop music. It only makes sense that his new remix for fellow Swede, ABBA’s Frida, is a sensational work of pulsing, thumping disco and electro magnificence. Lindstrøm takes on Frida’s I Know There’s Something Going On, off her 1982 solo album which happens to be getting a limited edition reissue. To put it succinctly, Lindstrøm’s remix is pure epicness. 

Wilco covered Get Lucky (AND A LOT MORE)

June 24, 2013

Chicago rock veterans Wilco played a set at Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts, and they decided to do some thing kind of crazy cool. They played a covers set filled with 27 classic and new tunes. There’s a full set up on NYCTaper but their service seems to be temporarily down, so in the meantime, let’s just tune into this fan video of PART of the set. Which part? Wilco’s cool spot on cover of the ubiquitous Get Lucky. This looks like it was LOADS of fun. 

Here’s a list of all the covers they went through during this gig. Amazing. I want to hear it all:

The Boys Are Back in Town (Thin Lizzy cover)
Cut Your Hair (Pavement cover)
In the Street (Big Star cover)
New Madrid (Uncle Tupelo cover)
Dead Flowers (The Rolling Stones cover)
Simple Twist of Fate (Bob Dylan cover)
Ripple (Grateful Dead cover)
Who Loves the Sun (The Velvet Underground cover)

James Alley Blues
Waterloo Sunset (The Kinks cover) (with Lucius)
Waterloo (ABBA cover) (with Lucius)
(What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love and Understanding (Brinsley Schwarz cover)
Marquee Moon (Television cover)
Happy Birthday To You (Mildred J. Hill cover) (to Pat Sansone)
(Don’t Fear) The Reaper (Blue Öyster Cult cover)
Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young cover)

Color Me Impressed (The Replacements cover) (with Tommy Stinson)

Retro Modern Mashup!

December 27, 2011

Ellie Goulding shared this wonderful mashup of her song Lights and the classic ABBA track Super Trouper. It’s a mashup of both a retro moment and a recent goodie! And it sure works well too. Totally loving this. ABBA is timeless! The mashup and video mix is by Reborn Identity. Swedish disco pop plus Brit pop for the win!

ABBA vs Ellie Goulding – Lights Are Gonna Find Me (mashup) from Reborn Identity on Vimeo.
