The Kaiser Chiefs just released an exclusive EP over in Japan called Lap of Honour. It features 5 new songs, a live track, and this remix right here by none other than Tokyo new wave cyborgs Polysics! It's not quite as interesting as their previous remix of "Luno" by Bloc Party, but it still brings a smile to my face. Basically it just takes the vocals from the original and floats them over top of mechanical beats and typically frantic Polysics guitars, only to distort and warp them further like a robot low on batteries. Polysics will embark on a U.S. tour in support of their new album Now Is The Time in March, followed by a U.K. tour opening for the Kaiser Chiefs in April.
