Klik Klak Klaxons
So these Klaxons are the latest thing apparently. They are presented here on a tip from a friend of mine. They hail from Britain, a modern rockband, taking post-punk, to a new post-post-punk phase.

I'm actually not sure, whether I like their brand of dance-indie, but the remixes send shivers down my spine, which is a start.
As a matter of fact Klaxons seem to be a perfect example of how much can be added with a really good remix. Take the video on Youtube as an example. If you compare it to the remix by Third Eye Mafia it becomes desperatly obvious that this band was is missing that final something. Until they find this enjoy the remixes!

First song is Atlantis to Interzone in a Third Eye Mafia reworking, which adds that urgency a bit lacking in the original. So much urgency that if 2-Unlimited had kept their sound, reused here, they would be the greatest band in the world right now!

Second song of the day is the Van She remix of Gravity's Rainbow, starting of an unrealesed b-side by Mylo it turns into something a bit more wicked indie-like. The distorted vocals work like a charm (and when hasn't distortion done that by the way?), making the song infinetly superior to the origanal.
