SBSR: Skruncha-roo “Someone That I Used to Know (Remix)”

Recently, I’ve been downloading and listening to music like crazy from Band Camp.   This is a review of a group of songs by the same band I got from Band Camp- usually it constitutes an EP.   This is a song-by-song review and it is never to exceed six songs.   At the end, I will tell you the “Recommended Downloading Level”, which means whether or not I think you should spend your time downloading these songs.   It’s on a scale from 1 to 5, 5 meaning that you should stop reading my review and download these songs immediately and 1 meaning that if you even think about downloading these songs your computer will be infected with a horrific bad music virus.   Enjoy.
Skruncha-roo “Someone That I Used to Know (Remix)”
[2:58] – This song is originally by Goyte, who has an album out that I haven’t heard yet but plan to one day soon.  I kind of like the original in a weird way, but it’s a radio song so I also feel my favor of it might fade in time.     This remix has a bit of a funkier beat to it- something like Violent Femmes or out of the jungle.    I don’t think it has nearly as many words as the original and the vocals also sound a little bit off (higher pitched).     It’s interesting enough, but if you’ve heard the original you’ve definitely heard more than enough.
Recommended Downloading Level:  2/5
