Dirty Projectors Remix Phoenix’s ‘Entertainment’ [Listen]
How many different versions of ‘Entertainment’ can your ears take? A lot, apparently. French electro-rockers Phoenix have commissioned several indie acts — including Grizzly Bear, Dinosaur Jr. and Blood Orange — to produce remixes of the first single off their new album, ‘Bankrupt!’ and now Dirty Projectors have tried their hand at redoing the tune.
Whereas Dinosaur Jr.’s version was really more of a straight-up cover, Dirty Projectors follow Grizzly Bear’s lead and go the traditional remix route, starting with Phoenix’s original tracks as source material and adding to it to create a somewhat disjointed and wandering — but totally entertaining — ‘Entertainment’ sound collage.
