Editor’s Pick #107: Animal Collective’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs remix now online by caitlindewey

…Well, sort of.

Gorillavsbear just posted this tidbit – the first I’ve seen – from what may be the most highly anticipated remix of the year.  Not sure how I feel about it.  Some of the synth feels v. awkward.  

Either way, it will be better than previous attempts to mix/mash-up Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as Jett and I discussed in our last podcast.  That Radioface “Y Girls” mash-up?  Yeah, never should have happened.  And Stereogum called MSTRKRT’s remix soulless.

We’ll reserve judgment on the AnCo attempt until the whole thing makes its way to the web – the remix is the B-side to a limited-edition “Zero” 7-inch, which came out last week with pre-orders of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s phenomenal new album, It’s Blitz!  I’m sort of surprised there isn’t a full copy of this remix out there.  Do y’all know of any I’ve overlooked??

I was just going to write about this. It’s a lot better than the others…but I’m still confused. “Zero” isn’t even the best song on the album…and what makes a song more eligible for remixing?
