Jukebox: YACHT remixes Wolfmother

YACHT's take on Wolfmother's "New Moon Rising" makes an incredible transformation of an otherwise forgettable song. With a much stronger use of melodic instrumental lines, some strategic repetition, and a clap-tastic beat, YACHT has managed to make Wolfmother sound more like a reinterpretation of Beck than their usual Led Zeppelin. It seems as though this ditty was always meant to be a grooving, beat-driven track where discotheque psychedelia could weave around Wolfmother's bread and butter rock n' roll. I'd like to imagine this song made it into one of the DJs hands at fashion week in NYC- it will certainly be playing on repeat in my apartment as I pour over the looks from the spring shows.
