Manchester Orchestra - Bed Head (Local Natives remix)

Why do we like this?

Manchester Orchestra has explored some decidedly unexpected directions in their latest album, The Million Masks of God, that have taken them out of their post-hardcore comfort zone. The benefit of this is no better exemplified than by the ability of microhouse artists, Local Natives, to remix their tracks into brighter, more danceable numbers.

“Bed Head” is one such track, wherein the brooding, glitchy original is turned on its head to become upbeat, playful, and considerably brighter. The remix sees singer Andy Hull’s vocals altered into an airy falsetto presented alongside softened melodies, sparkling synths, and grooving bass. And of course, the trucking, resonant beat typical of the microhouse genre is ever-present. Did I ever think I’d want to get up and jam to Manchester Orchestra? No, I did not. Did Local Natives not only make this notion accessible but entirely impossible not to do? You best believe they did.

The core of the song shines through like a golden thread, despite the added keys and sun-kissed dance beat. There’s a lot of pop and sparkle that wasn’t there before, but the initial sound is still kept somewhat intact.

The original version of "Bed Head" features on Manchester Orchestra’s sixth studio album, The Million Masks of God, which was released in April of this year via Loma Vista Records.
