To anyone who says, “I don’t like electronic/dance music because it’s cold and remote and mechanical, because it has no soul,” I offer the eminently warm, lush romanticism of We Plants Are Happy Plants as the first piece of evidence in my argument to the contrary.

He’s been doing his thing and getting some degree of music-blog attention for at least a couple of years, but I hadn’t encountered WPAHP until this summer, through his remix of the National’s “ Afraid of Everyone. ” Ardent National fans who don’t tend to favor dance music might disagree with this take, but I was immediately intrigued and impressed by WPAHP’s treatment of the disquieting stunner from the National’s 2010 masterwork, High Violet .
