Saint Etienne - Burnt Out Car 2008

The UK act's latest single isn't entirely new. "Burnt Out Car" was originally recorded in the mid 90s. The song has been made over by Xenomania in their indelible style. This is one of two singles that will be promoted to support their greatest hits collection entitled London Conversations: The Best Of Saint Etienne. This will be available in the UK on September 29.

While the new version has all the hallmarks of the Xenomania Euro Hi NRG sound they have been known for, it is not cheesy. The production is lush and very fluid. Sarah Cracknell's vocals float over the track and are almost hypnotic in some places. This mix sounds like it could have been done in the 90's, but it doesn't sound dated. This is a great update.

Grade: A
