The TV on the Radio member praises "strange drug music"
Earlier this month Trent Reznor helped Dave Sitek ring in his new label Federal Prism by providing a remix for the imprint's inaugural single. Now, the TV on the Radio co-founder and producer has returned the favor by reworking "Keep It Together," the new single from Reznor's How to Destroy Angels project. The already glitchy, bass-boosted track gets weirder still in Sitek's hands, as he abstracts the vocals and recasts the percussion, making a spooky mood piece that eventually latches onto a spiraling guitar riff before exploding into 808 bounce. Wired had the premiere, along with an oblique quote from Sitek: "A chance to be pushed through the veins and swarm the heart. Saddled to this strange drug music … a wild trip…. I was lucky to be asked." Is that haiku? The band's second EP, An Omen, is due November 13 via Columbia.
