Occasionally, I get Interpol's "Obstacle 1" stuck in my head, and it will not leave the premises. Especially those chiming Television-esque guitars; this morning was one of those times. My landlord was knocking on the door to tell me the exterminator had arrived, and all I could think about was the bleak drone of those fellows in bespoke. That leads me to wonder -- do you keep track of what song's in your head when you wake up in the morning? Or are my pals Miss Jones and Sasha and I just weird like that?

Oh, children. The following remix is blissfully divine. Get ready for your weekend: Put it on and dance around your bedroom in your underpants. I'm serious. If you love me, you'll do it. In case you couldn't tell by now, I truly adore the new Hot Chip record a whole lot. And you'd better believe I'll be paying to download The Earlies' remix of "Over and Over" on Tuesday (Hot Chip + The Earlies = swooning), the official street date of the four versions of the single. The following is the 12" release, and the b-side, "Plastic," is also pretty darn amazing.

Max Tundra, you wacky genius, you! I also wanted to post his cover of Architecture in Helsinki's "The Owls Go," but for some reason, the FTP ate it. Bad, bad FTP.

Have a wonderful weekend, kiddiewinkles. I'll be alternately rocking out and working in Photoshop and writing. How glamourous is that?
(Sidebar: I got an RIAA infringement notice for one of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs tracks, so they're all going down today. )
