Current listening: Kylie Minogue – 2 Hearts (Version by Studio)

The Studio album “West Coast” is certainly one of my favourites from the past year. It sort of blends two of my favourites from 2006, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas’ self titled album and Fujiya & Miyagi’s “Transparent Things” and adding some vocals which are oddly reminiscent of The Cure and there is a bit of Arthur Russell and some Can in there somewhere too. It’s like a coach trip to visit your French cousin in 1980 converted into sound. It’s nothing ground breaking but it’s loping and spacey and beautiful nonetheless.

And now they have converted Kylie’s new single into something which far exceeds the fine but somewhat pedestrian single version.  Don’t get me wrong I do like it but it lacks magic, which is something that this remix does have.  Studio take out most of the plodding beat, add shimmering strummed guitars and end up with a soundtrack to an autumn sunset over a white island beach. At over seven minutes, it is not a moment too long.

“Books and records new wave and disco”

    If you want to have a listen you can download the song for free here.

    Seven minutes is a good time for a song like this and i can certainly see what you mean about it being a “soundtrack to an autumn sunset over a white island beach”. I am very chilled now.
