When we posted “The More That I Do,” the lead track from Swedish minimal techno whiz Axel Willner, aka The Field, the comments focused on (a) how beautiful it is and (b) that is makes use of the Cocteau Twins’ “Lorelei.” In this remix by the Foals, you may want to shift gears to the tinnier sound (it feels blanket muffled or rusty), the attempt at loud-soft dance-floor dynamics, and the additional threads of percussion. For all the tweaking, the original’s more impressive in its assured approach to the ecstatic. It’s from the Fields’ second proper full-length Yesterday & Today, which is out in a couple of weeks. This remix is via NME.
