download @workdrugs’ remix of “beth/rest” by @boniver

19 Aug

Work Drugs have remixed Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest” from Bon Iver for Bon Iver’s “Stems Project.” The winner gets $1000 and will be featured on the Spotify remix playlist. You can vote for their remix here According to the band:

Work Drugs traveled to a small cabin in a densely wooded area of The Poconos to find inspiration for the Bon Iver remix challenge. Using a 10 year old Packard Bell found along the roadside, Work Drugs crafted the “Beth / Rest” remix with an outdated version of Windows Sound Recorder. This remix is dedicated to Peter Cetera.

We love what the band has done to the remix; adding their musical flair for many things yacht rock. Download Work Drugs’ remix of “Beth/Rest” below and be sure to watch the video.

somebody told me the answers were in my mind
next to the reasons and under the love we hide
but I know where they go (everytime I lie)
(they ain’t comin’ for us) I know

somebody told me the future was mine was to lose
riding a wave and turning this white to blue
but I hope they’re wrong (it’s keeping me alive)
(they ain’t coming for us) I know
