Spoon – Can I Sit Next You (Ad-Rock Remix)

Scroll down to content

Spoon’s great 2017 album Hot Thoughts is ripe for remixing, with the most danceable beats and synth-heavy arrangements of Austin band’s long career. They’ve handed the single “Can I Sit Next to You” over to Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, an initially surprising pairing that eventually makes a cosmic sort of sense, given each artist’s swaggering way with minimalism. Ad-Rock strips the original of its disco-y chorus melody line and almost everything else, leaving Britt Daniel alone with some boom-bap drums, a bit of bass guitar, and a ton of dubby vocal chops and effects.
