Mark Ritsema (Suzie)

Most “Karma Chameleon” covers are tackled in the basements of grim karaoke bars by nostalgic drunks with a splashing vodka cranberry in hand, but Minneapolis outfit Suzie has given the ’80s chart-topper the Midas Touch. Frontman Mark Ritsema plows through the classic, giving Boy George’s biggest hit a lo-fi, shoegaze sheen—the sound we fell in love with on Suzie’s standout solo cut, “Isn’t It Funny?” Mastered by John Miller and featuring drums by Jared Isabella, this is the “Karma Chameleon” remix you never knew you needed.
