“Dig too deep into it and you’ll pull your hair out.”
The Lorde has blessed us this week.
The best of a New Music Friday that did not hold back.
One would’ve thought it would be hard to beat Flume‘s year in 2013, but he’s doing a good job of competing with it in 2014. He recently played three sold out shows in New York, stunned a packed out Lollapalooza crowd and delivered remixes for Lorde, Seekae and Chet Faker. Now he’s adding to that with a remix of Arcade Fire’s Afterlife from their 2013 record Reflektor. Flume chops and manipulates Win Butler’s vocals while laying down a subtly climatic, ambient sound scape. Still, it maintains the same uplifting vibe of the original. It’s a little bit softer than Flume’s past work but no less effective.
