When we did our most recent alumni radio show at Wittenberg University’s WUSO 89.1 (where everyone at TWJ cut their musical teeth, to an extent), Matt spun a song by one of his “24 Women to Watch in 2011“. It was strangely alluring — the kind of song whose appeal is a mystery at first, but then after a time whatever reason you had for gravitating toward it doesn’t matter. Because it’s just good.
That song Matt played was Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife”, and it’s been given the remix treatment by the f-ing awesome Star Slinger. We brought you the remix SS did of Tyson’s “Out of My Mind” not too long ago. These guys have a knack for adding layers but not losing the strength of the original. In this case, Winston’s attitude-filled and lovely voice carries the tune, and the remix allows it to still do that, but with a fantastic backing beat and some kickass snare. It reinvents the song, but isn’t intrusive.
