Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” is a classic post-punk anthem that has inspired hundreds of thousands of listeners to get involved with music and follow the DIY punk rock ethic—an aspect that may have led to TV on the Radio’s cover of the song at this year’s recently wrapped Pitchfork music festival. Given that cover, Das Racist has returned the favor with their own rendition of TV on the Radio’s recently released track “Caffeinated Consciousness.”
The remix features flowing hip hop vocals over TVOTR’s progressive, haunting original melody. The track is featured on the group’s Chemical Peels single alongside Mylo’s “Will Do” remix.
You can hear the “Caffeinated Consciousness” remix over at TVOTR’s MySpace page. More info is available via iTunes.
