Yacht "Le Goudron"

I don't know if it's just me but lately I haven't been able to stop listening to Yacht's version of Brigitte Fontaine's "Le Goudron." Don't get me wrong although Brigitte's version is very intense, what I like about Yacht's version is that they infused their own sound, which is electronic and sprinkle it over the song and created their own song. The reason for the release of this track was to announce their European tour which kick starts tomorrow.
