Motown Gets A Makeover

This stuff may be sorta dark for the Monday morn back from the weekend of expanding waistlines, but it’s too good to care. The Jim Yoshii Pileup’s Quarterbar has posted “Quarterbar Gets Sad With Motown,” four remixes of classic Motown tunes, bringing out the inner indie in the likes of Smokey Robinson, The Four Tops, and The Supremes. To the timeless vocal track for each song, Quarterbar adds synths, electro beats, and plaintive acoustic guitars. So good. (via GvsB)
