Four Tet Remixes Andrew Bird

It’s been a long few weeks, and at times like these, I turn to my most soothing, familiar, and comfortable music. For me, that can only mean a few select bands, but Sufjan wasn’t cutting it. Neither was Ted Leo (surprising, I know). So, as a last desperation to cheer myself up, I put on the new Four Tet remix of Andrew Bird’s “Imitosis”. Problem solved. With signature Four Tet percussion, and a steady crescendo, teamed with the fact that “Imitosis” is one of my favorite songs on one of my favorite albums (Armchair Apocrypha), I was out of my funk before the song was even finished.

While you’re at it, check out Four Tet’s take on Sia’s breakthrough hit, “Breathe Me”. Talk about taking a song in a completely different direction yet still maintaining a high level of awesome. When I grow up I want to be Keiran Hebden.

    This is awesome news! I look forward to hearing it, for sure. Thanks.

    Nice!

    I was just listening to Four Tet’s remix of Radiohead’s “Skttrbrain.” These two tracks here are sounding quite good.

    awesome! thanks for posting that first remix… it made my day! Nothing like two of my favorite artists in one track!

  4. Jay says:

    The “Four Tet” remix of Sia’s ‘Breathe Me’ is basically a poorly executed & uncreative (if not annoying!) percussionary addition that adds absolutely nothing to the song.

    Two thumbs down for that one, and I feel sorry for Sia that her great song has been tarnished with this VERY poor effort.

    you mustve not listened to the entire song, cause at around the 3:35 mark, the song gets all sorts of awesome.

    thank you so much for sia´s “breath me” as a rmx, I love it!
    greetings from germany

    Hmmm, nope. Listened to it again. Twice. Still sounds like no improvement. If you want a decent re-edit of this song, listen to Mylo’s remix.

    Sorry, but still definately not a winner in my opinion.

  9. Zack says:

    fair enough. i’m open to opinions, whether they contradict mine or not. except people that hate on the redskins, ted leo, or string cheese.

    Where did that remix of Mr. Bird come from? Is it on a record of mixes or was it a single? I’d like to get my hands on some other quality Four Tet mixes. Thanks. Anyone know how the Four Tet Remixes disc from ’06 is?
