The Knocks & Foster The People - Bitter Sweet Symphony (from Melody & Silence EP)
This whole 90s kick that The Knocks & Foster The People are on at the moment is tickling me in all the right places. This new EP includes covers of three iconic tracks from that era, including nods to Beck and Moby. However, it's the excellent indie dance spin on The Verve's 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' that has made me smile the most. It's pretty close to the original, albeit a little faster, and they also seem to have added the percussion from 'Step On' by the Happy Mondays behind it. Feel Free to insert your own melon twisting joke here.
