Courtesy of Saddle Creek, here's a sparkling new remix of Tokyo Police Club's new song "Tessellate" by Tom Campesinos!
Let's break this down here. TPC is a young Toronto quartet whose debut, Elephant Shell, recently came out. It's spunky and fantastic, like Death Cab for Cutie snorting Pixie sticks with the Cure and Stars. Tom Campesinos! is a member of Los Campesinos!, a spunky Scottish collective whose debut, Hold On Now, Youngster... also recently was released. Tom imbues "Tessellate" with his group's trademark xylophone; strangely, the mix is much slower and sadder than either of band's usual output. However, it's fantastic! Download!
