New York’s Spirit Animal has given new meaning to the word “remix.” Instead of picking a single track off The XX’s latest release Coexist, Spirit Animal has reinterpreted the entire album. Eleven second clips from eleven tracks were selected and manually edited. No samples, synths, guitars, or drum machines were used. If there was a drum beat in one of the 11-second clips – or a vocal or keyboard or guitar sound – it was taken, chopped up, and sequenced until it was a real song.
