Foals premiered their new single, Spanish Sahara, last week on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show. The track is a 7 minute slow burning epic that is a major evolution from their debut album. Yannick Philippakis' vocals carry the song through it's long drawn out crescendos and little felt climaxes. On their debut his vocals seemed systematic and shouted, on Spanish Sahara they are emotional and broken.
Mount Kimbie, fresh off the blog success of their Sketch on Glass EP, have come through with a remix. Their attempt does not make too many cuts through the original, deciding to add some extra percussion where required and altering the time sequences throughout.
This may not sound like much, but side by side analysis makes it clear that Mount Kimbie have worked on this remix, and unlike many other remixes AbandonSilence hears, you can hear that they actually like the music they are deconstructing.
Seen as the video for the single was released last night, we have decided to share that with you as well. Enjoy, watch the video, take the mp3s, join us with abated breathe for when their forthcoming album comes.
