Chairlift Remix Telepathe (Stereogum Premiere)

One of the things I liked about early Telepathe was the spooky, hollowed, and echoing sound. While it’s a fun record, the Dave Sitek-produced Dance Mother loses that vibe amid the hi-fi layers. Which is why it’s interesting hearing standout “So Fine” paired down and minimized by Chairlift. You can spot Charlift’s Caroline Polachek dancing in the Burzum-toting “So Fine” video, so they clearly dug that version, but this takes it to a darker party down the street. It’s one of three remixes on the CD version of Dance Mother.

Telepathe – “So Fine (Chairlift Remix)” (MP3)

You can hear the Atticus Ross Remix of “Michael” at the band’s MySpace. The other one’s the Big Pink Reality’s remix of “Devil’s Trident.”
