I Want You to Stay

While our new endeavor to bring you the non-current music that has played on our stereos over the years, I think, has been somewhat successful, it doesn't mean the two of us aren't out there looking for and finding great new tunes. Today we've got one of those wonderful new songs- a new track/remix from one of Newcastle England's finest, Maximo Park. The band has found much success with their catchy and often dancable ode to British post-punk legends like the Jam and Wire. I very carefully say "ode" as Maximo Park has been one of the recent UK bands of note, along with Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party, who, while their influences are obvious, do bring something unique to their presentation that prevents them from being retreads- the new so-and-so's.

"I Want You to Stay (Field Music Remix)" is the 3rd track from the I Want You to Stay import single available February 23rd from Warp. Remixers Field Music, who hail from the same celebrated north east scene that spawned both The Futureheads and Maximo Park, bring a classic old-school pop sensibility to the track making it even better than the original. Their work here, and on their own self-titled album preach love for Beach Boys style arrangements and Beatles lazy hooks. Check it out:
