The latest remix/mash-up from Animals at Risk -- the remix crew made up of Matt Fecher/DJ Hot to Death with Yonnas from the Pirate Signal -- is alive. The new track, "Intergalactic Fathers," takes the Beastie Boys classic "Intergalactic," chops up lots of little bits from Ideal Fathers "The Tendrils of Unreason" and makes something new(ish) out of the resulting mix. It's a decent track, but having never been a fan of that particular Beasties' cut, I can't help but wish they'd have chosen something else to fuse with the Fathers -- you'll probably get more out of it if you're one of the majority that seem tot adore that particular tune. You can preview the new track on the Animals at Risk MySpace, or just take advantage of the fact the track has found its way out into the wild and download it.
