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.

    amazon says it’s out dec 9

  2. the remix came out as a promo single 2 weeks ago (along with a acoustic version of Oxford Comma). It was released Digitally today on iTunes. I don’t know if it will see a domestic physical release though.

  3. Well that’s two strikes against the recording. LOL!

    in the second picture the guy in the vampire band looks so much like a girl

  5. I like Chromeo but not sure about this song. However I think it’s a tough song to remix so kudos for trying.
