Todd Rundgren Remixes Andy Bull

When he wasn’t busy touring Australia, remixing Tame Impalaor jawing with Davey Lane, cult iconoclast Todd Rundgren found time to rework ‘Baby I Am Nobody Now’, the current single from Sydney’s keyboard-centred artist-producer Andy Bull.
In Rundgren’s hands, the clubby, claggy synth-pop of the originalbecomes unmoored, a ballad made squiggly and cosmic. The falsetto-licked chorus is preserved, but from there Rundgren stretches leisurely out with a synth-y, looping bridge that builds the anticipation for another chorus.
‘Baby I Am Nobody Now’ is Bull’s second self-produced single, following March’s ‘Keep On Running’and 2010’s instant-breakout debut EP The Phantom Pains, featuring the Lisa Mitchell duet ‘Dog’. The Sydneysider will release an album next year, having recently signed to Republic Records in the US.
You can download the remix free for the next two weeks here. Catch Bull on tour along the East Coast next month.

Todd has been doing some great remix work of late. This is probably a better way to reach younger listeners than his own records.
