When Kathleen Hanna was last playing around with synthy dance-music sonics in Le Tigre, the whole Tumblr remix-culture thing was still years ago, but god knows that band probably would’ve loved it. And Hanna sure seems amped about Portland duo YACHT’s bouncy, squirmy reworking of “Right Home,” a song from Hanna’s new band the Julie Ruin. She tells Rolling Stone, “Of course I like our version of the song, but YACHT added this whole new dimension. Now I can imagine it playing in the background of a totally uncontrollable party. Since I wrote ‘Right Home’ about trying to drink your pain away while knowing your problems are still gonna be there when you get home – along with a hangover – it thrills me to no end that random partiers, who may be caught in the same dilemma, will be dancing to this. If they catch a glimmer of the lyrics all the better, but it’s pretty meta either way.” Listen to the remix below.
