Friendly Fires' Pala is way too slight most of the time—a danger in the kind of '80s sonic fetishism the album has all through it, or any sonic fetishism at all, really. But its high moment is an astounding peak. "Hurting" is an outlandish fit of adolescent anguish that's like OMD's "If You Leave"..
This batch of remixes are the ones to skip entirely from the last album. The ones released on the bonus version of the Pala are the real winners. Head straight away for the Tim Green remix of 'Live Those Days Tonight' then also score the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur remix of 'Hawaiian Air' and your sorted for club use.
