The original “Transparence” by Asobi Seksu is a tooth-rottingly saccharine pop affair that's the smoking gun for anyone out there searching for where Pains of Being Pure at Heart got their traveling pants. The remix by Aa seems committed to tearing those sentiments up into granular explosions of percussion (not unlike their own live three-to-ten drum attacks), and they take that same knife to Yuki Chikudate's vocal melodies to great effect.
