Spotify: The place to go if you want your R.E.M. slathered in Depeche Mode glitter.

I don’t know if anyone else ever spends time wondering what R.E.M. would sound like if they were a digimon that had a digivolution that looks more badass but turns out to be just a little less interesting and also fell over sideways into the Depeche Mode glitter…I don’t know if that keeps anyone else up at night. It does me, I tell you. All the time, I wonder about it. I try to imagine the sound of that thought experiment.

I no longer need to wonder. I now know exactly how that thought experiment sounds.

It might even be these guys. I’m not yet sure.
