I’d have thought Jesus Christ would’ve risen by now to declare this track winner.

Boys Noize is a mystery to me — this is the one that grabbed me off his album Oi Oi Oi, and there’s not much to read about him online. I was hoping he’d make his way to Austin sometime for a show, but no luck yet.
Feist’s “My Moon My Man” is a pretty good track, but this is heads and shoulders above the original. Any fans of hers whose tastes meander toward the electronic will agree.
The computerized vocals give it a nice techno vibe from the beginning. Her voice is given space to shine through, and enough original instrumentation is used that you respect this as a carefully crafted remix rather than the latest from The Hood Internet (though I love ’em). Perfectly executed rises and falls too.
It’s a shame the fluff that populated the remix album based on her major label debut, Let It Die, wasn’t of this caliber.
You can find the original on Feist’s The Reminder.
