Local Natives – Who Knows Who Cares (Wax Nostalgic Mix)

Toronto-based producer David Hayes (aka Wax Nostalgic) is barely old enough to drink, so a moniker with the word “nostalgic” in it seems ill-fitting, but one listen to his take on the three-year-old Local Natives track “Who Knows Who Cares” and the picture becomes clearer; Wax Nostalgic has some musical perspective. Hayes seems to be following in the footsteps of RAC, employing warm synths and a pulsating bass-line, and bringing the original’s horns to the forefront. The result is the sonic equivalent of putting on a snuggie in the dead of winter and cozying up next to your significant other/Japanese body pillow to watch your favorite old TV shows.
