LCD Soundsystem – “Drunk Girls (Holy Ghost! Remix)”

Remixes appear as frequently as clouds, and they’re typically half as engaging.  However, on the extremely rare occassion where one with serious merit comes by, I’m all too happy to stand up and praise it.  For whatever reason, I wasn’t expecting Holy Ghost!’s remix of their label boss – the remix king himself – to be anywhere near as vital and essential as it is.  I may even like it a tiny bit more than LCD’s original.  Holy Ghost!’s take on “Drunk Girls” renders it almost unrecognizable save for the chord progression and lyrics.  The bratty Bowie/Reed glam stomp has been refashioned as a shimmering, rubbery dance track.  Think Hercules & Love Affair with Bernard Sumner guesting on guitar.  If you’re anything like me, that just gave you goosebumps.
