We can never get away from the sprawl

I painted this for you
The new Arcade Fire album is pretty cool, but I can’t say that I’ve been listening to it very much. The words “I really want to listen to The Suburbs right now” never seem to cross my mind.

The exception is “The Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains),” since that song was my summer jam. I haven’t posted it because it’s not been cleared by the band or label, but here’s a remix by Thunderlust. It’s fairly similar to the Blondie-indebted original, as it sticks to the melodies and chord progressions pretty closely. The biggest difference is that it’s sped up significantly, which changes the tone from resigned desperation to joyful abandon.
