Friday morning, mere hours after The King Of Limbs was released, reviews were already popping up all over the internet. Music critics and bloggers were keen to be among the first to get their opinions public about a record they’d spent a couple of hours with. Well, they’ve got nothing on these people. Songs from The King Of Limbs are already getting remixed and mashed-up with Jay-Z, while one band has even managed to release a cover record of the entire album.
First up, Swedish producer Mojib adds some vocal samples and slows down the piano-driven Codex:
Separator has also been remixed:
And finally, Prefix Mag has pointed out that Los Angeles band Robotanists have covered the entirety of The King Of Limbs. Pretty quick turnaround on a record that we heard for the first time a few days ago. You can download the entire album here for free…or you could put The King Of Limbs on again.
It’s absolutely crazy how fast we consume, create, and distribute these days.
