Miike Snow's Paddling Out gets the remix treatment from Jacques La Cont. The playfulness of the originals is combined with Lu Cont's ascendant, almost baroque synths. Lu Cont goes on extensive, fascinating digressions with the original. Check out the cacophonous turn taken around the 3:55 mark. These are but a few things to unpack from this full but never overstuffed remix. Miike Snow's 'Happy to You' will release in March.
Miike Snow gets a genuinely fun and surreal video for 'Paddling Out'. Magic shoes atop Grecian stools, ax murderers, spaceship captains, women in 16th century wigs, middle aged men trying to discover rhythm, break dancers in leather pants, houses on top of said spaceships with captains, Jeremy Lin, the Perfect Human, 30 clones. Only one of those things is not actually in this video (you should check just to be sure, though). This video for 'Paddling Out' is so gleefully ambitious, and unconcerned to seem cool. So real its surreal.
