Glass Candy 'Deep Gems'

In The Hangover there’s a great card counting scene where ‘Iko Iko’ by ‘The Belle Stars’ plays as the cast start their assault on the casino. It reminded me of a cover version by the amazing Glass Candy called ‘Geto Boys’ which samples Issac Hayes. It’s a summer classic, full of Glass Candy’s trademark shrill thrills. I heard it on ‘Deep Gems’ – their singles and b sides collection. Get it and there’s also the amazing ‘Stars & Houses’ – ethereal – and bleepy ‘Poison or Remedy’ – complete with rolling chords. Love the artwork too. Chef’s Kiss!
