Afghan Raiders stopped by the electronic rumors Inbox to drop off their latest reMix and this time its Psychedelic Indie-ElectroPoppers Neon Indian who get a ‘Raiders going over.
There’s almost a Dubstep vibe running through a lot of this track, Big warping Dub basslines and rimshot rhythms run through the first couple of minutes until the Analog ElectroPop kicks in.

The Faint easily rank up there as one of my favourite bands ever so any hint of new material is exiting for me, even a new reMix.
Here, Las Vegas based duo, Afghan Raiders take an already aggressive song and create a noisy, angry, nightmare of sound that somehow manages to retain it’s groove.
It’s powerful stuff:
