I gotta say, I’ve never been a huge fan of Nine Inch Nails and/or Trent Reznor, but his pairing with El-P on Flyentology is pretty great.
And this might be a rare instance where I prefer a remix to the original. This mix, by Cassettes Won’t Listen, seems to drop the tempo by just a notch, making it more of a head-nodder. The vocals feel more out in front of the mix, and the synth line underneath it all is slightly ominous, sorta what you’d expect from an El-P track.
Reminder: El-P at the Clubhouse in Tempe on May 23.
