Angels (Four Tet Remix) – The xx
by Leanne Naramore - (Contact) - September 20, 2012
You guys. This is my favorite thing I’ve heard in weeks. Four Tet takes The xx’s “Angels” and morphs it into “part music box, part snow globe,” as Spin puts it. Four Tet hones in on the vocal, bringing Romy Madley-Croft’s smooth, completely pure presence to the forefront and adding a twinkling soundscape to complement. Can’t stop playing this one…enjoy.
(Prepare to be snapped back into reality by an abrasively loud British DJ at the end. An exciting perk of this being a radio edit!)
