phpthumb I don’t do it often, but sometimes I actually read my e.mail.  Sorry if that upsets anyone, but the ol’ inbox gets quite flooded with submissions.  A while back I started listening to less and less, as they got worse and worse (not gonna mention any names). Well I had forgotton that I also receive a nice selection of fine quality tunes as well.

The guys at Asthmatic Kitty records did us a solid, and sent us some quality tracks this week, and I was in one of my open-ness moods.

For those who aren’t familiar with My Brightest Diamond, (and I’m about to compare them to another band, something I hate when people do, but I’m going to do it anyways) she sounds like Imogen Heap meets We vs. Death. But depending on your familiarity with those two artists, the metaphor may be lost on you.

I always get nervous when the remix of a song is longer by a considerable margin than the original. I usually chalk that up to being some ridiculous intro that I can’t stand; or some instrumental section that is either perfect, or complete rubbish. Well this one is going to be the latter, the instrumental section.  And as for the other part of that, it’s a perfect instrumental section.

This remix builds on the intensity of the original with some great added break-beats, but the strings are what made it for me.
