You read that title correctly. Today I received an e-mail from Local Natives very own Kelcey Ayer, informing me that he has been doing some remixes of songs from Hummingbird. He just released the remix for “You & I” today. As far as remixes go, this is as legit as it comes, straight from the band itself. So I guess you can consider this an alternative version of sorts.
Enjoy it below, via Kelcey himself.
Daft Punk are cool enough that get to remix their own songs. But then again, they’re also good enough to make the songs into new wholes and create almost a new song within a song.
This is what they did on their remix of “Get Lucky” , where they extended the song to 10-minutes, mixing Pharrel’s vocals with theirs almost battling for the spotlight.
Download that below and then hit the jump to stream the entire album.
Due to the power of the internet (twitter), Purity Ring and Danny Brown got together and created a remix of Belispeak with some “hungry” verses from Danny Brown. It’s being called a sequel. Take a listen below.

Fly Lo also just released a short film called Until The Quiet Comes.
Jim James, My Morning Jacket’s front-man, gave alt-J’s incredible song “Fitzpleasure” a pretty wild remix. The song is electic and unique as it is, but James found a way to bend its boundaries even more.
Health remixed Crystal Castles’ Suffocation, and the result is a great moody re-working of the song. Yesterday they released the music video for “Suffocation”, and now we get this. Not a bad 24 hours for Crystal Castles.
Grab the remix below.
Put The Rapture” and Cut Copy in the same song, and you got a dance explosion of sorts. The Rapture got Cut Copy to remix “Sail Away” for the single’s EP, and result is a synth delight that has Cut Copy’s fingerprints all over it. Stream it along with two other remixes from Aeroplane and Cosmic Kids at DFA’s Soundcloud page.
The EP drops January 16 via DFA Records.
