Stream: Fever Ray - "If I Had a Heart" (Fuck Buttons Remix)

"If I Had a Heart", the lead-off track from the excellent self-titled debut album from Fever Ray (solo project of The Knife singer Karin Dreijer Andersson), is a spooky minimal electro-noir track with atmosphere so thick you'd need a cleaver to slice through it. Avant-noise fetishists Fuck Buttons have taken the liberty of dropping a remix of the track just as the album became available for download this past Tuesday (it'll physically show up on the 7" single for the track next month). So it sounds more or less exactly as you'd expect coming from these two artists, and it'd be real hard to top the original, but along with "Bright Tomorrow" this may be the most single-ready track Fuck Buttons have attached their name to thus far. Stream it over at Stereogum.
