Premiere: Apache Beat, “Your Powers Are Magic” (Boy Crisis Remix) MP3

October 01, 2009

The first time we heard this remix by Boy Crisis we were like, Um yeah awesome but when does the song start? Then we realized that we'd listened to it a bunch more times and that its lack of definable hook or vocal melody, or really anything but those otherworldly calls paired with slowed Purple Rain style synths, is what made it work. It sounds tiny and massive at the same time, like watching an insane party happen from a mile away, everything larger than life but still distant. Apache Beat's "Your Powers Are Magic" single is out right now and they'll be touring with The Gossip through October. After the jump check out tour dates and hit their MySpace for any new information.
