On thing we love most about Peter Bjorn & John is their unpredictability. They careen from glistening pop to coldly strange world rhythms to shoegaze to frenetic garage workouts. You honestly don't know where they're heading next! And now, in advance of yet another bout of touring (do these guys ever stop?) they've "leaked" a complete rethink of their last album, Living Thing, in the form of a hip-hop remix album. Re-Living Thing is filled with cameos both large and small, including a vocal turn by Chicago's own Rhymefest on The Kickdrums' remix of "Nothing To Worry About." The best part about the whole thing? Peter Bjorn & John are just giving it away for free. So check it out!
