Best Thing Ever - LCD/Kanye Mashup/Cover Madness

So recently Mason Proper came out of left-fucking-field and did this downright glorious cover/mashup/instant party of Kanye's already-pretty-awesome "Love Lockdown" and LCD Soundsystem's even-better "Get Innocuous."

I know, I know, half of everybody on Earth hated 808's and Heartbreak, but the loping minimalist bass pulse of "Lockdown" becomes twice as catchy backed by "Innocuous'" driving motorik beat, and the ever-divisive Auto-Tune is wonderfully absent.

And--you know, the singer can actually sing. A good thing for a pop song, generally.
