We Are Standard "Don't Give Up (John Talabot Slowing It Down Remix)"
- Words: Thomas Rees
We Are Standard (pictured) may be stuck in a time when Franz Ferdinand ruled the hearts of indie kids, but John Talabot performs a breathtaking and new turn on this remix of "Don't Give Up." The track is slowed and given a nice proto-house kick along with pulsing synths that recall KZA, or even the early lushness of Luciano. The original's vocals are almost nowhere to be found except in a pitched-up recurring snippet, and shimmering harmonies cascade towards the piece's end. Quite impressive work from one of Spain's best new exports! (via Pitchfork)
