Echoes Revisits Band of Horses' The Funeral

When Kid Cudi remixed Band of Horses back in the day, I gained an appreciation for their folk rock appeal. That was way back in 2008 and since then, Band of Horses has continued on to a point where they were nominated for a Grammy in 2010. At no point did I think to myself, man their music would sound great with a little bit of drum and bass added to it. To that point, credit Echoes for doing an amazing job remixing their first ever single The Funeral.

I'll admit, it took about a minute ten seconds for the remix to get into gear, but Lexi Norton knocked it out of the park. Where the original was slow and melodic, the remix is harmonious and energetic with the drum and bass leading the way. The chopped up vocals fit well with the beat and make it a completely different track than the original. To be honest, it's going to be quite a while before I get sick of this one, it's got serious playlist staying power...#ReadyForTheFuneral
