As they promised at the Woodies, Chromeo have done a number on Vampire Weekend’s “The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance,” and it sounds absolutely nothing like the version they performed with their Columbia brethren later that night. It’s a fun listen — syncopation and synths run rampant, the signature guitar line gets a keyboard makeover with some new chord movement in the mix. Sounds like Ezra gave ‘em a new vocal melody to work with, too. Hear it at Hype, and compare it with this shaky video of their vocodered collab from the mtvU party:
I believe the remix version is set for release sometime soon.
