Londoner Soft Riot’s high-stepping remix of "Don't Let Me Down," by the weird-pop Window Twins (the Bay Area team of Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys and Jon Bernson of Exray’s), sounds less like science fiction, as the "Wormhole Version" name suggests, and more like the grimy entrance song of a leather-jacketed rat. The Fonz with a cheese stick in his teeth, trotting around and snapping to the song's funky bass line, a riff blown up even bigger than the original here thanks to an array of mimicking synths. The Twins' sophomore LP, Wish, is out now on cassette and vinyl via Crash Symbols and Volar Records. Check out the video for "Two Left Feet" underneath the download.
