Any band that attracts remixers like DJ Mehdi, Benny Blanco, Crookers, and Treasure Fingers on only two songs has to be doing something right. The thing about Miike Snow is that they're not just any band. There up-beat electro/indy-pop is very quickly bringing them the attention that some bands only get after several CD's and tours. After a week or two of anonymity, Miike Snow let us know who they are and it turns out Pitchfork has taken an interest in these boys as well cause they wrote it up in one of there News In Brief sections. Check that out. Anyway, after a week or two of letting their quick success sink in they are back already with a remix! They seem to be able to do it all. Their remix of Vampire Weekend's "The Kid's Don't Stand A Chance" easily trumps the original as well as the Chromeo remix. Pitchfork said it well in their review of it, that there is a slight Postal Service feel, but I'd also say that that distorted part that shows up only twice probably reminds me of a slowed down Bloody Beetroots riff.
