Sing Leaf‘s David Como pulls apart the already very interesting “How Will I?” from Sandro Perri’s 2011 delight ‘Impossible Spaces’. Sing Leaf’s mix focuses on the wonderful electric stage piano and Perri’s wonderful vocals. Rumour has it, there might even be a remix EP from Sing Leaf on the horizon so stayed tuned.
Sing Leaf is opening for Sean Nicholas Savage at a Silent Shout showcase on December 9th at Double Double Land.
Beta Frontiers does some mighty fine remixes. So it’s amazing that he’s taken on fellow Daps-ers Phèdre‘s incredible song “Ancent Nouveau.” That crazy-catchy melody totally needed a trippy synthpop remix. To top it all off there’s a killer psychedelic video for the remix, courtesy of director Andrew Olivares, whose work we also dearly love. Guys, too much talent, ease up!
Phèdre’s awesome new album Golden Age is available from Daps Records here.
Montag – Memori (Herri Kopter Remix)
Herri Kopter, aka Montreal’s Jérôme Minière, recently remixed electropop darling Montag. He takes “Memori,” which features Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring on vocals, to a very beautiful atmospheric place that we don’t want to leave. Perhaps we’ll never navigate away from this webpage. Don’t forget to revisit the original!
How to Dress Well – Running Back (CFCF remix feat. Cadence Weapon)
Whoa, out of nowhere, three of our favourite people all on one track! CFCF deftly reworks How to Dress Well’s “Running Back,” accentuating the grooves of the original and lengthening the vertical range of our head-bobs. To top it all off, Cadence Weapon with a super-smooth closing verse? Wow.
Jay Arner – Don’t Remind Me (Teen Daze Remix)
Jay Arner – Don’t Remind Me
Another week, another Jay Arner remix to keep our endless appetite for the Vancouver psych-pop songwriting genius satisfied. Last week we had this yummy self-remix of “Midnight on South Granville.” Here we’ve got renowned fellow Vancouverson Teen Daze stirring the stew. The original is provided as reference. Jay’s awesome debut album is still available from Mint Records.
Klaatu – Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (DJ Lace Remix)
There’s something a bit ridiculous about DJ Lace (of Space Disco fame) mashing up Klaatu’s classic with occasional snippets of ELO’s “Telephone Line” but we can’t help smiling at this inspired remix. More 70s prog-pop remixes please!
