MP3: Gotye & Kimbra – “Somebody That I Used To Know [Bibio Remix]“
Do we really need to introduce this song? Gotye’s little break-up duet, featuring Kimbra, has fast become the year’s breakout alt-pop jam.
Good old Wally and Kim are all over your airwaves and naked on your TV set/internet, so what more is there to add, right? Right?
Well, according to Bibio, there’s plenty. The cult UK producer – beloved for his psychedelic breaks, folk daydreams and tape loops – has stepped up to reimagine the heartaching hit as joyfully ambivelant elevator muzak.
The trickle of plastic waterfalls, the freedom of keyboard meanderings and the foot-tapping pleasures of a light tango. It’s all here, folks.
