Tegan & Sara – “Alligator (Toro Y Moi Remix)”

By Amrit Singh / March 31, 2010 - 4:17 pm

The second single spawned from Tegan & Sara’s Sainthood just got 17 makeovers: The twins’ new digital album Alligator culls remixes of the original from many remix friendly artists — Holy Fuck, Passion Pit, Doveman, Ra Ra Riot, Dave Sitek, and Mad Decent among them. Quoth the Quins: “If you’ve ever fantasized about having a dance party with 17 versions of the same song…watch out, this is your dream come true.” Cute. The causer of this (you get it)  remix is Toro Y Moi, who shelves the bloopy keyboard and Jason McGerr’s dailed-in drumwork in order to process “Alligator” through his personal chill filter, via darting synths, de novo deep beats, and washed out gloss. Bravo, Toro.
