Salem most notably twisted her single Til The World Ends into a dystopic cry in 2011, but that was more about atmosphere than accuracy, since that track was post-breakdown and really about liberation, dancing to loud electro and stuff. suicideyear does something much better with his take on the properly sad Everytime from 2004 – building a gauzy, lo-fi rap beat and straining the original piano melody for all its sadness with great care and intent. The description explains, albeit allusively, that this song is dedicated “to kaykay. goodbye florida, july isnt so far away”.
