A couple of years back, Mexican Slang's Annabelle Lee self-recorded an EP called Twerp that included a rough version of the song "Fever." This has now been re-recorded for a forthcoming 7-inch for Buzz Records, and it can be heard now.
This isn't too radical a change from the original version, since it's still a fuzzy punk stomper with atmospheric, psych-tinged textures. But unlike the paper-thin sonics of the prior version's drum-machine-driven squall, this is full-bodied and heavy. At least part of the credit for this belongs to Josh Korody, who recorded and mixed it.
