- This remix might make you nostalgic for your younger days.
- Four Tet's recent single, "Teenage Birdsong," channeled a sense of optimism that feels nostalgic for anyone who's left their teenage years behind. Avalon Emerson's remix is delightfully in keeping with that feeling, and even more joyful than the original. With more focus on the percussion, her remix opens with a clatter of drums before giving way to a new vocal line (presumably of Emerson singing herself) that sounds more Four Tet than Four Tet. The melody line bounces all over the place, between synths and between octaves. It goes off-track here and there, but it carries on without looking back. That's what you do when you're young.
