Too Much To Handle (Shook Remix)
Last week we featured the first remix for Brooklyn based indie-pop troupe Great Good Fine OK‘s latest single “Too Much To Handle” from the always stellar Penguin Prison. Following that outstanding take, is the second offering from GGFO’s official remix selections; this time coming from enigmatic electronic producer Shook. Shook instills an almost Balearic atmosphere on top of his revision, fusing recognizably glossy and warm dance backing onto ripely plucked instrumental stems from the original. Furthering this one into a space of melancholy yet buoyant bliss is Jon Sandler’s soothing falsetto; which sits like a melting pad of butter on a big ol’ stack of Shook’s musical hotcakes. Those hotcakes of course being blithe synth stabs and a carefully arranged percussive melody of course. We’re beyond happy to bring you Shook’s remix of “Too Much to Handle” before anyone else, so hop to it before the rest of the blogosphere gets their hands err… ears on this gem.
