Bikini "R.I.P. (Grimes Remix)"
Brooklyn pair Bikini has a new 12" of remixes coming out on June 7, which features the likes of Teen Daze, CFCF, and Win Win (you may have already heard that rework here). This alternate version of "R.I.P.," which will sadly not be on the release, comes to us courtesy of one very of-the-moment songstress, Montreal-based artist Grimes (pictured above). The singer/producer gives Bikini's track a rinse of ghostly R&B melodies, broken dance grooves, and hazy soundscapes—all crammed within about three minutes of poignant dream-pop. Grimes' production may not get an official pressing, but it's certainly another quality example of why she's been commandeering a lot of blog feeds as of late. (via Gorilla vs. Bear)
