As a rule, remixes don’t usually do much for me, unless I didn’t like the song to begin with.
The undeniable, hit classic ‘Call Me Al’ by Paul Simon has been remixed by The Limousines, an American Indietronica band. This song definitely did not need reinvention of any form, but the changes seem slight enough not to destroy or disassemble and rebuild the track, but jazz it up just enough to make it that bit easier to dance to. I am still undecided on the merrits of this remix, but expect it will gain The Limousines some notice if not followers.
The song is free to download from Lauren Laverne’s Six Music blog or here.
