Phoenix - "Entertainment (Dinosaur Jr. Remix)"

It’s tough to say why Phoenix are selling Dinosaur Jr.’s cover of their new song “Entertainment” as a remix rather than a straight-up cover; as far as I can tell, Dino Jr. keep no elements of Phoenix’s original version of the song intact. Instead, J Mascis turns their gleaming, precision-engineered pop song into a slow, gorgeously stoned contemplation, replete with quietly blazing guitar solo. As covers go, though, it’s a pretty stunning thing, and I’m pretty sure I like it more than the original song. Download it below.

Phoenix’s new album Bankrupt! is out 4/23 on Loyaute/Glassnote, and I hope Dinosaur Jr. cover the whole thing.
