Remix Fix: John Grant/Gwenno

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.

I'd call this here remix a perfect fit. Take the silky smooth operator vocals of Mister John Grant and add some slinky synth tomfoolery courtesy the fabulous Miss Gwenno, and you've got the lady's tweak of the gentleman's "Voodoo Doll." It's a dynamic little shimmy of a song that you'll probably end up listening to more times than you can count.
