We would’ve thought Keepon’s keepin’ on would’ve intimidated Spoon from even trying to top it, but here Portland resident Britt Daniel and his Austinites are, taking an Official stab at a music vid. Funnily enough, it’s this touring-and-traveling clip that winds up looking like the unofficial one, with its phone-cam quality and washy colors and smuggled-footage vibe. In fairness it never stood a chance at being more memorable that the last one, but at least it doesn’t look like it hurt Britt’s bank account any. (HEALTH, if you’re listening, you should probably just do something similar.)
And then there’s the remix train: “Don’t You Evah” was remixed by Diplo. Britt recently gave a spare, cool rhythmic remix to Feist’s “I Feel It All,” and now it’s Spoon’s turn to be on the receiving end. Via Billboard:
The 8-song Don’t You Evah EP features the Natural History’s version of “Don’t You Evah,” Spoon’s version as previously released on last year’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and new song “All I Got Is Me.” Additionally, Diplo, Matthew Dear, Ted Leo, DJ Amaze and Alan Astor and newcomer Doc Delay Fixerupper all had a hand in remixing the track.
Expect Don’t You Evah on 4/8 via Merge, the same folks that made you go Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.
