#88 peter bjorn and john – let’s call it off (girl talk remix)

it’s taken more than a year for me to pick up my peter bjorn and john writer’s block album again. initially, it was just so hard listening to the whole album without letting the rest of the songs get overshadowed by the whistling glory of “young folks” (remember my soft spot for whistles?). it also didn’t help how much that song had been overplayed everywhere. but hearing the album afresh at books actually that day prompted me to give it another chance, and i can’t believe how much this record still snaps, crackles and pops. “let’s call it off” is my new favorite track which encloses within it a simple story of bad experiences and present abandonments, ending on just that tentative and incomplete note with each heavy strum and a once soldiering drum beat that finally dies. and since i’m feeling generous this weekend, here’s the girl talk remix of that same song. it’s not greg gillis’ most adventurous mix, knowing what he’s capable of, but he does add a nice minimal electro touch to it.
