WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Mr. Little Jeans Remix of “The Suburbs”

The Arcade Fire’s title track from their most recent album The Suburbs drips with enough heavy-weighted melancholy all on its own, but Norweigan electro lady, Mr. Little Jeans [Monica Birkenes], crystallizes it into an even more startling form with her frozen rendition. Touted as ‘the next Kylie Minogue’ (and alternately Debbie Harry, Karen O and Lykke Li references, too), Birkenes has yet to release her first album, but still seems comfortable as you please to tackle a song revamp of a Grammy-awarded group.
