alt-J – Left Hand Free (Lido Remix)


Norwegian producer Lido just released an excellent remix for alt-J‘s “Left Hand Free.” This take is so far removed from the This Is All Yours original it’s whistling its way into outer space. Only when the vocals pipe through is it actually recognizable. “Left Hand Free” wasn’t even supposed to sound like alt-J. It came off more like The Black Keys fronted by Beck 10 years ago, and this remix yanks it in another direction entirely. Do you know what being drawn and quartered feels like? Judging by this remix it can’t be all bad: garage rock, electronica, blues and folk pulling you in all directions, shoot-me-down-bang-bang all the way down. Stream it below.
