DOWNLOAD: The Very Best – Warm Heart of Africa (Violens remix) (MP3)

The Very Best

“The problem with hearing so much music is it gets harder to be surprised. But this album defies all preconceptions and never settles into a genre that you could name and locate on the shelves or download menus.” [Guardian]

The Very Best‘s album Warm Heart of Africa is out (physically) this week. Track #3, “Warm Heart Of Africa”, in addition to featuring vocals by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, has been remixed many times, many ways. And now here’s a new one by Violens. Check out the MP3 above.

Violens have three CMJ shows scheduled so far. One is at Bowery Ballroom with Kyp Malone’s Rain Machine. Another is the Green Owl showcase with The Very Best at Le Poisson Rouge on October 21st. All tour dates below…
