Ducktails "Letter of Intent" (Mark McGuire "Road Chief" Remix)
Published Feb 22, 2013As previously reported, Ducktails and ex-Emeralds guy Mark McGuire are heading out on tour together this March, but the acts also get together on Ducktails' new remix EP for The Flower Lane cut "Letter of Intent." The remix bundle comes out this Monday (February 25) through Domino, but you can check out McGuire's redo a few days early.
Done under McGuire's Road Chief guise, the rework features those same angelic vocals and '80s-minded soft-pop arrangements as the original, but McGuire punches things up with new drum machine ticks, even sparklier synth work and some vocoded backups. You can stream it down below.
Ducktails leader Matt Mondanile and the rest of the crew also premiered a video for the song proper, which you can check out over at Rolling Stone.
