title:: Heartbeat - CD2
label:: 679 Recordings

For her second single from Anniemal, Norway's Annie has chosen the Saint Etienne-ish Heartbeat. The song is a good choice. It is upbeat and catchy.

CD2 has the original version along with remixes by two artists from the UK: Maurice Fulton (Mu) and Phones (Paul Epworth). Sadly, both remixes aren't as good as the original mix - sometimes you just get it right the first time.

label:: Damaged Goods
