We'll cop to not being the hugest Florence and the Machine fans on the planet, so it was a little nerve-wracking (or as nerve-wracking as these things can be) to press play on this. Lucky for us, Yeasayer inherently got that they couldn't make this remix super weird, because Florence just performed at the VMAs and has actually managed the impossible 2010 feat of selling records. Instead, they cut up her vocals and turn the whole thing into a simultaneously psychedelic, poppy and disorienting potential wedding party jam. Pitchfork has the stream and also a creepy picture of Florence just kind of chilling in the air around the members of Yeasayer's heads.
