A State Of Mind

I’ve flip-flopped around with Primal Scream’s RSD cover version of Mantra For A State Of Mind, starting off thinking it just sounds lazy, then liking it more (Jason Pierce’s guitar probably making the difference). The original S’Express version (from 1991) is pretty wonderful, discofied and then a housier last few minutes. As Craig at Plain Or Pan pointed out, it isn’t a million miles from Don’t Fight It, Feel It.

And just because I’m kind to you this is the Weatherall remix of Find ‘Em, Fool ‘Em, Forget ‘Em, a loved up, piano and synth driven excursion with heavy breathing and airhorns, also from 1991.

Free Your Mind

You might have seen and heard this already but if you haven’t get your ears opened up- Cut Copy remixed by Spiritualized. Cut Copy decided to write a call to arms for a new youth movement. Jason Pierce remixed it with some organ, some guitar notes and a lot of controlled noise and static, with some of his whispered bottom-of-the well vocals appearing about reaching for the sky. Quite superb.
