Today, Sub Pop is releasing The Drummer, a new digital-only EP from forward-leaning Swedish pop duo Niki and the Dove. SPIN's got a gnarled, free-floating remix of the EP's title cut from nascent Vancouver producer Mike Tucker, otherwise known as Blood Diamonds. It's bomb shelter R&B with a deep, almost scary affinity for the vocal melodies it guts and then tosses.
