It’s rarely a good thing when the first song you hear and love from a band is a remix, since it usually provides zero indication of what they actually sound like. Disappointment often ensues.

A recent case in point: Superhumanoids’ “Malta,” as remixed by Lesands, is slow 80s-flavored chillwavey happiness (yes I said chillwave. whatever. i think it has actually earned a place in the lexicon, unlike, say, hipster crunk or whatever sleigh bells was).

The original, by comparison, is rock+synths = fine-but-not-especially-interesting. Crappers! I guess the lesson here is that Superhumanoids are probably great but Lesands is better. I have no backing whatsoever for this statement.

Now that I have so explicitly picked apart my feelings on the matter, I hope you can still enjoy this remix I so lovingly selected for your THUUUURSday.

The original was fine, but yeah, this knocks you on your ass from the moment it starts.
