Our old friends in ZAMBRI are back in town tonight, kicking off a few dates with UK luminaries MAXIMO PARK at the Middle East in Cambridge, and to celebrate, Noel Heroux of HOORAY FOR EARTH passed along this sussed-out remix of the sisters' track "Carry." Heroux turns up the bass, gives it a mild case of the glitchness, and drops it in the middle of a dance floor seance while retaining Jessica and Cristi Jo's spiritual magneticism.
With a band like HOORAY FOR EARTH,
who keep one foot in Cambridge and the other in NYC, it'd be very convenient to
suggest their sound recklessly straddles the two like Rev. Moore's crazy
daughter from Footloose. Alas, this new track
sounds a lot bigger than Boston, Brooklyn and Beaumont combined. Well, not alas

Hooray for Earth: odd band. Get 'em drunk, and they're liable to belt out a Justin Timberlake hit, or maybe one of Jacko's. Left on his own, their singer has been known to crank out Magnetic Fields covers. In their own right, HFE have carved out a unique niche that's equal parts indie breadth and metal brawn, like a second coming of Queens of the Stone Age.
