Tareq put together a bangin dub of Casey Spooner’s Faye Dunaway, and lucky us he’s giving it away as a free download on Soundcloud. Casey and Tareq have proven to be a winning combination. Preview and cop that shit immediately.
Here’s a quick recap of some of my favorite tracks from the past week (there were some really good ones.) Needless to say I should have written this on Sunday, but I would have missed out on Mylo’s amazing Cut Copy remix. Check it out below. Photos are of Juan Betancourt but unfortunately the photographer is unknown to me. More after the jump.

Mustang remixed Casey Spooner’s Spanish Teenager. The single’s music video finally dropped this week, so check it out if you haven’t yet.
Casey Spooner debut his music video for Spanish Teenager today on Nowness.com. I feel like we’ve been waiting forever for this.
I had the opportunity to see Casey Spooner two weeks ago during his opening performance on the Scissor Sister’s Night Work tour. Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters) co-wrote a few song with him for Spooner’s upcoming album, Adult Contemporary, and asked the ex-Fischerspooner to join them on tour. Casey Spooner got a brand new silver suit and hopped right on the tour bus. We got a preview of his new adult (contemporary? har har) crooner sound that reminds me of Fischerspooner hits like The Best Revenge. The track Spanish Teenager was co-written by Jake Shears and is set to be the album’s lead single. You can check out the beautiful Tareq remix of the track below, and stay tuned for more single info.
According to Spooner’s twitter, copies of the album were made available to fans during the Scissor Sister’s tour but I didn’t see any when they stopped by Montreal. You can join his mailing list for up to date album info. Look out for Adult Contemporary tracks called Cinnamon Toast, Faye Dunaway, Exquisite Corpse, Perfecto, RSVP & Cliche.
