Cornelius Remixes MGMT’s “Brian Eno”

Cornelius seems poised to have a really big 2011, what with his collaboration with Salyu and some help with that If By Yes project. So what better way to continue this hot streak than by stepping back in time to 2010 and rejiggering MGMT’s “Brian Eno?” The jaunty hop of the original recording gets diced a bit here in favor of space, Cornelius surrounding the vocals with nothing but some piano, handclaps and streaks of harpsichord. Things get a little more fuzzy late in this rework, but Cornelius’ take on “Brian Eno” presents the track in a pretty different light without sacrificing any catchiness. Listen at Stereogum.
