Remix Fix: Emmy The Great/Tom Vek

In theory I like the idea of the remix: taking someone else's song and tweaking it the way you want it done. It's a great means for completely redoing something, and for reinterpretation. Sometimes remixes go awry, and sometimes they're better than the original. Remix Fix is all about the happy medium when a remix totally nails it and makes a song that much better.

What better song to celebrate the opening of pools across the country than this slinky, sultry remix of Emmy The Great's "Swimming Pool" by Tom Vek? The vocals are luscious, and the song itself feels a bit hedonistic as it builds tension to a heady crescendo. Perfect for listening to while lounging suggestively by your favorite pool.
