Spoon - Don't You Evah Remixes

If anyone knows me, you know I fucking love Spoon. FuCkInG lOvE tHeM. Despite some not-so-choice career moves in my eyes ::cough Stranger than Fiction cough:: and a lackluster 5th album, I have always been a fan. 2001's Girls Can Tell and 2002's Kill the Moonlight are some of my favorite albums ever...EVAH!

Speaking of evahs, that's what the meat of this post is supposed to be about. Not just my love for Austin based Indie Rock acts, FuCkInG lOvE tHeM, but a Spoon single that has recently gotten some attention from some of the movers-and-shakers in this here dance scene.

On their newest album-2007's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga-Spoon had a single entitled "Don't You Evah." Originally a Natural History tune, Spoon covered their opening act's tune and turned it into a hit. Since the album dropped in July of last year, Britt and the boys have decided that their cover single needed some pizazz and punch. So recently producer/DJs like Diplo, Matthew Dear, DJ Amaze And Alan Astor, and even other personal Manley favorite Indie Front man, mah boy Ted Leo have given this song their own treatments. I received the CD in the mail from Turntable Lab yesterday, I am not disappointed my friends.

The songs are all different in their own rights, with each reworker throwing their own personal flair in their mixes. Ted Leo's is rather slow and somber, Diplo's has a multicultural beat behind it, etc. I have included some of the tracks from the album that I feel stand out, Matthew Dear's digital spin and DJ Amaze And Alan Astor's dance jam versions - and also the original from The Natural History.

Hope you enjoy.
