Okay, so I get an email from these cats in NYC to say they've finished a remix of Regina Spektor's "Folding Chair" off of her latest album, Far. The folks in question are (Pretty) Girls & Lasers, and today, they'll be debuting the remix at a party down in the East Village at Arlo and Esme. Below is a map.

Well, this had me digging around for some other works of Spektor's that have popped up. Surprisingly few I could find, however! I did find a couple of nice remixes of "Fidelity", which I'll be featuring here. Perhaps the PG&L folks will even be privy to comment after their party about their new remix for you all!
This first remix is gritty, subdued, and overall just a different mood from the original, which is why it works so well. The man behind it is Manhattan based DJ Blockhead. Good work behind this mix.

Next up is just a gorgeous piece of work by DJ Morgan Page. I have to say, I do remember Morgan from here in Boston, and it's good to see this kid getting some acclaim for all the hard work he's put into it! This is his unreleased remix of "Fidelity" and again, it's an absolutely wonderful piece or remix work.

And lastly? Who could forget the original? It helped launch her career to a much bigger level, and despite the pop nature of it? Is a great track.

Yep. Buy stuff. Or you will not get laid this year. At all. Hell, that'd scare me into buying stuff!
