Mouthful of Diamonds

In case your ears are still bleeding from yesterday’s post, here’s the perfect cure to (almost) all your problems: Alan Wilkis, a regular name on Disco Demons, has once again hand-picked a perfect song to make it sparkle even brighter by gently covering it with glittering star dust – it would be insulting to call this masterpiece a “remix”, as he only kept the catchy vocals, turning the song’s mood from “minimal trip-hop to ultra-layered bubblegum pop, from dark to ultraviolet-bright”, as he says. This rework has been my glimmer of light today after going through an endless flood of emails and music. I highly encourage you to give the original song a listen on Phantogram’s Myspace for two reasons: To get an idea of how different (and still harmonic, though) the two versions are, and to just close your eyes and float away in an amazingly beautiful nightmare.
