LI OKX alumni Northern State had Le Tigre calendar star JD Sampson do a revved remix of Can I Keep This Pen’s’s Grey’s Anatomy-approved first single “Better Already,” lowering the guitar riffs and adding layers of percussive ricochet to the deal. The hallucinogenic video for the song’s original state was all about butterflies, friendship, and L7 melodies. Under JD’s watch you still get the melody, but it pops and locks amid space synths, break beats, bass thumps, and one hella dose of LCD cowbell.


Sounds a lot like Le Tigre! Not that we’re complaining: Would love to see McDreamy shimmying through the hospital to “My My Metrocard.”

    Hell yes I’d like to see McDreamy (& McSteamy & Alex) shimmying to Le Tigre but IF it was My My Metrocard they’d have to be like “this song’s abou a**holes like us! Damn!” Thanks for the Le Tigre-related news. I always miss them when they don’t have anything on the horizon to hold us fans over with. Maybe I should fly to NYC and get my hair cut this weekend…

  2. This remix came out pretty good, but the original song was so unique to begin with, I’m not quite sure why Northern State decided to have an even more unique remix created. Nevertheless, both versions are pretty enjoyable, so I guess I shouldn’t complain.
