Tame Impala - Let It Happen (Soulwax Remix)
I don't often listen to remixes or covers, but since Tame Impala themselves posted a remix onto their website, how could I possibly stray away from this. And as if Tame Impala's initial single 'Let it Happen' from the newly released Currents isn't soulful enough, Belgian group Soulwax turns 'Let it Happen' into something quite extraordinary. Soulwax's dominant pulsating baseline that shifts back and forth into Kevin Parkers original guitar riff, along with the tangy cowbell that lingers has your head travelling into peculiar places, your soul in the middle of a bar brawl, and your body moving to a South American Tertulia. I'm not saying this is better or worse than Parker's initial symphony, nor am I saying I prefer it to the original track. What I am saying is that you've got to listen to it.
