Asaf Avidan – Reckoning Song (2008) and Wankelmut Remix (2012)

Stumbled on the Wankelmut remix of this while surfing Beatport this evening.

The remix of the track only really begins to hit the heights from about 3 minutes in for me. However, the original is just over 2 and a half minutes of genius and was originally released in 2008.

The plot thickens because Asaf Avidan is an Israeli singer songwriter; a son of diplomats in the Israeli Foreign Office. An Israeli Joe Strummer perhaps?!

Discard any prejudices you may have because this sounds like a cross between Bon Iver and Billie Holiday … a match made in heaven.

Altogether now …

One day baby, we’ll be old

Oh baby, we’ll be old

And think of all the stories that we could have told

The original and then the remix …
