Spoon vs. John McEntire

Spoon's latest single is Sister Jack, a track from their recent LP Gimme Fiction. The "b-side" (it is a CD single) has the previously unreleased Sunday Morning Wednesday Night, the video for the title track, and a John McEntire remix of another track from the LP, I Turn My Camera On. In it's original form it's a super sparse slow jam - vaguely funky and minimal. McEntire applies his sonic magic, beefing up the beats, adding watery effects and punching up the vocals. The end result is almost gangsta in it's feel - sounds crazy, eh? Spoon have always had a heavily danceable appeal to their music, so it's cool to hear that played up. Here's I Turn My Camera On (John McEntire Remix).
