Spoon songs tend to be impeccably recorded, with lots of empty space, so you’d think they’d be irresistible for remixers. But we haven’t encountered too many Spoon remixes, especially official Spoon remixes, over the years, perhaps because the producers of the world have realized that they can’t improve on perfection. So credit Cody Votolato, guitarist for reunited post-hardcore spazzes the Blood Brothers, with being brave enough to take on “Do You,” the shimmering single from Spoon’s great new album They Want My Soul. Votolano mostly tinkers with the drums and vocal filters without fundamentally altering the song’s DNA. Listen to his reworking below.
They Want My Soul is out now on Loma Vista.
