MP3: Don Juan Dracula - Take me home

It's been awhile since we've heard anything new from Norway's Don Juan Dracula. I was super excited that they agreed to contribute a track to my "Reader's companion volume two" and subsequently a bit disappointed that they went on hiatus immediately after, but it's all good in the end because they're back together now, working on fresh material (three tracks 100% complete, more on the way plus a single sometime around February/March). As for today's mp3, this is a nice little treat that showed up in my inbox this past weekend. It's not as exciting as a brand new single, but why look a gift horse in the mouth? A Johan Agebjørn/Sally Shapiro remix is still plenty nice, especially considering the way they've revamped the track. Sally's breathy vocals and softer synth tones give the song an even better end-of-the-night vibe. Removing the guitars was a good idea too, not that they were very loud in the original, mind you. DJD has always skated on the edge of 80s synthrock cheesiness (the right side IMO), but once you get rid of the guitars, that feeling is gone. Well done.

Look for an international release of Don Juan Dracula's full-length "Young debutantes II" this coming spring with a proper new album expected closer to summer.
