the band: Xiu Xiu
the song: Stupid in the dark
the defiler: Kid606
the remixes: two distinctly different remixes of the original song, and then one longform extended version of the first remix.
The concept: Throw some Belgian newbeat, land of rape and honey era Ministry, The Field, Suicide, Neu, Front 242, EBM, and Swans into a blender, add some Kale, coconut oil and almond butter and Viola.

What are the lyrics about ? Well according to some random internet user named Alllice who likes to leave comments on the website "songmeanings.com"
"This is about killing someone, possibly a recent acquaintance, and about helplessness of people, which are easily loved and killed ("in the dark")."
I am pretty sure that is not accurate but it sure is fascinating that we live in a world where random people can share their ideas about the meanings other peoples songs to other random people, seriously wow, thank you internet.
