Here's a musical collaboration of the 'WTF' variety that we can really get behind. In the blue corner: world-dominating, gazillion-selling, silly hat-wearing pop sensation Lady Gaga. In the red corner: falsetto-singing, hundreds-selling & all-round amazing Brit indie band Wild Beasts.

The Beasts have recently remixed Gaga's latest single, You and I, and the result is an irresistibly paired-down & mellow track that we simply can't stop playing. Frontman Hayden Thorpe tells the Guardian: "The unlikeness of this match was perhaps what compelled us to take it on. Gaga in many ways is the epitome of what we are not. She is the butcher to our butter knife."

Very well put indeed. It's worth noting that the remix is also helping raise awareness to the support of independent labels that lost stock in the recent Pias UK warehouse fire. Click here for more info on that.
