I have two very different things to say. The first is Neil Young, and the second is electro. Are you still with me? Good, because this cover of “Harvest Moon” might just blow your mind. Poolside is an electro duo hailing from Los Angeles that attempt to—in their own words—capture the sound of a perfect afternoon, in the form of daytime disco. It’s a bit of a mouthful, but you’ll understand the moment you press play.

For those of you who remember Neil Young’s original “Harvest Moon,” this track is going to come as a bit of a shock. While the duo keeps the relaxing vocals you’ve probably grown accustom to, they’ve stripped all of the instrumentation and replaced it with a relaxing arrangement of beats, synths, and finger-snaps—all of which sound incredible. Give it a listen, but be forewarned hardcore Young fans, this track may not be for you.
