Interpol Vs. Spoon

Last week saw the release of the new Interpol single Slow Hands. It's one of the standout tracks from their forthcoming Antics LP, and on the single there are two remixes - Dan The Automator gives it the glossy treatment and makes it sound like something from his Head Automatica side project - it doesn't do much for me. The other is handled by Britt Daniel from indie rockers Spoon, and his take on Slow Hands is the shit - it strips it all down to the bare essentials (much like a Spoon record), and the focus is put on the hugely funky bass line and the hissing disco beats. It's raw and groovy, and I think I might like it even more than the original!

I think i like this version better than the one on the album - it takes the 'indie disco' drum beat out of the chorus until right at the end, and also makes it easier to sample! ;)
