Next week, DFA will be releasing a 7-inch single celebrating Pylon’s masterful “Cool” single, the main draw of which being Deerhunter’s cover of the original. By the power of the net, it is below for you, and it is pretty great. What’s really surprising is how closely Deerhunter play it to the original. Seriously, apart from Bradford Cox’s vocals, this might as well be the original. Who knew Deerhunter could get down like this on another band’s song?
The b-side of the single is where shit gets crazy: Calvinist, the DJ name of Sasha Frere-Jones, remixes Pylon’s “Yo-Yo” twice, both times with help from Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss. That single sounds crazy. It’s due out on June 28.
