Yoko Ono x Miike Snow – Catman (2016)


Miike Snow’s reinterpretation of “Catman.” Pulled from Ono’s 1973 album Approximately Infinite Universe, the original is, unsurprisingly, pretty bananas even without Miike Snow’s magic: a sax-blasted freakout which sees her caterwauling in the closing bars with freeform abandon. (On a side note: that album also features a song entitled “I Felt Like Smashing My Face in a Clear Glass Window.” Man, she has such a way with words.) But anyway! To Miike Snow’s version—which basically sounds like Harajuku-and-Atari-enamored aliens have abducted the master tapes and gone to town.
