An unexpected combination yields lovely results.
In honor of Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday, Animal Collective have remixed ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’ from his The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. The remix comes from band members Geologist and Deakin and is a far cry from the Animal Collective’s hyperactive new album Painting With.
The pair provide a subtle, gentle touch to the classic song with watery synths and manipulated birdsongs. It ends up sounding a lot like something off of Animal Collective’s softest, prettiest recordings like Campfire Songs and Sung Tongs.
Listen to it below and revisit our interview with the band about their new album.
