Tunng - "Hustle (Bloc Party Remix)"

Bloc Party’s tricked-out remix of Tunng’s spaciously hushed …And Then We Saw Land lead no doubt helps the song live up to its name. “Hustle” is quietly percussive and forward-arcing in its original form, albeit in an airier, less bells-and-whistles way: More or less, we’ve gone from post-Incredible String Band urban-pastoral to glow stick-waving diva time. If you recall, Tunng covered Bloc Party’s “The Pioneers,” so this brings the dance party full circle.
