Over a year ago, Bon Iver released the most cohesive album ever made in the history of music. Every moment, every song title, every note seemed painstakingly considered to flow seamlessly together. The opening track “Perth” (read: “Birth”) signaled the beginning of a journey for Bon Iver, just as the closer “Beth/Rest” (read: “Death/Rest”) signaled the (blaring-horn-filled) culmination of a great work of art.
“Perth,” a gorgeous mesh of falsetto and little drum rhythms, set the stage for the album’s musical and emotional triumphs. Lucky for us, then, that it just got a nice boost from Canadian chillwave artist Teen Daze. A rebirth, if you will.
A bigger, slower drum beat is the headlining feature of this remix, as well as a gaggle of synths and samples (and was that a tambourine in there somewhere?). Basically, it’s a great remix and it helps get a fresh new take on the song – all the better to appreciate Vernon’s luscious vocals.
Step 1 – Make a playlist of the album Bon Iver, Bon Iver entirely with remixes (Need suggestions of remixes for the other tracks? Write a comment and I’ll spill my collection)
Step 2 – Listen (You may wish to prepare yourself with a j or two)
Step 3 – Profit.
