Arthur Russell "This Is How We Walk On The Moon (Labyrinth Ear Rework)"

Normally we would advise against messing with songs by the legendary Arthur Russell. That being said, London-based duo Labyrinth Ear (pictured above) has tastefully put its own touch to the iconic musician's "This Is How We Walk on the Moon," and we're kind of into it. The electro-pop rework pays homage to the original by maintaining a stripped-back, vocal-driven feel, but also moves along at a faster pace and is adorned with swirling synths and female vocals that trail Russell's own. It all builds toward a washed-out finale that pushes a subby, four-to-the-floor 808 beat, stuttering modulated vocals, and pattering percussion into the forefront. With a rework as on point as this, we'll make sure to keep a look out for what comes next from Labyrinth Ear.
