Isaac said he kissed you beneath the apple tree (oh!)


Dig this terrific remix of the Jackson Five classic “The Love You Save” (that sage 1970 warning against booty calls?) from NYC’s Lower East Side duo The Knocks, who have also given their fresh treatment to The Killers, Peter Bjorn & John, and Passion Pit.

I always find the Jacksons eminently remixable (DJ Z-Trip did my favorite ever, but this is also close). Their songs were so laden with strong foundational elements that can be teased out to the front in myriad different ways. Enjoy this for your Hump Day. Holy heck.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
