The Chap have, according to Ghostly’s site, “never been influenced by anyone or anything at any time, ever,” which makes for a rather diverse group of tracks on the London, U.K.-based band’s forthcoming Mega Breakfast release. For “They Have a Name,” Bradford Cox and his Atlas Sound crew throw in yet another layer of eclecticism with a remix that doesn’t so much rearrange the parts of the original as capture the essence of it in a very different sounding track. The trippy drum machines have been slowed down, the vocals have been snipped out, and something that sounds akin to an 8-bit xylophone gives the new version that sweet, ambient feel present in most of Atlas Sound’s music.
