Sky Ferreira Loses Her Soul To The Remix

    When Sky Ferreira's "Everything Is Embarrassing" came out, the only things it really had going for it were a ridiculously 80s sound and a video where her hair fell into her face a lot (not half as good as the video where the tarantula walks on her lady parts, if you ask me). All that the new Krystal Klear remix does for the song is bring it up to date...if that date was 2004. Ferreira's self-harmonizing is brought to the forefont, which gives it a nice dreamy feel, but after the first chorus, the rhythm just sounds like bad department store music. The twangy bass, sensitive piano chords, and reverby beat are gone, replaced with copy-and-paste beats. In other words, the song has gotten worse. And it's two minutes longer.
