School Boy/Interscope Records

These past few weeks have been hard for me.

Ever since I realized 2015 would not be the year that Carly Rae Jepsen finally received the justice she deserves, I’ve just felt numb. What is there to love about a world that doesn’t recognize that her 80s-inspried pop music is some of the best of it’s kind in recent years?

Anyway, there’s a new Bleachers remix of “I Really Like You.” It sounds just like a Bleachers remix should.

Heavy on the percussion.

MORE SYNTHS.

And all without taking away from that infectiously repetitive chorus.

It’s good stuff, indeed.

It won’t do anything to help with album sales, though, since the album is already in Japan (and, thus, has already leaked globally), but doesn’t come out in America until August 21.

It’s very typical of Jack Antonoff to provide hope where there is none. It’s like a requirement for all fun. band members, I think. (Assuming fun. will continue to be a thing in the future. OMG. What if it doesn’t?!)
