They have annouced the tracklist on their blog and it looks well nice. 2CDs loads of talent.
2 CD's of remixes would surely be crushingly dull
it had another cd with lots of remixes and they are all really good, those are on this too along with plenty more. I'm lookin forward to it those original remixes came out really well.
thanks for that!
gazbid: i know what you're saying, some remix albums are far too long and far too shit, but we've tried to get a really diverse mix of people on there to make it a bit more palatable! it ranges from atmospheric jazz influenced drone (ithaca trio) to acoustic singer songwriter fare (sleepingdog) to dubstep (golau glau), techno (marco zenker), house (apparatus/ josh tweek), to noise (umber), to m83 madness (template) and hopefully a lot more inbetween. it seemed like the right idea to do it like this, as we had so many remixes come back to us after we posted the remix files to certain songs on our blog and facebook pages.
plus, as is mentioned on the facebook page, for the moment, the 2CD physical release will only be available on tour, the main reason behind the remix album was to do it as a download only album, so punters could pick and choose which ones they wanted the most, or just get all of em anyway!
it'll be online in a couple of weeks anyway, so you can judge for yourself!
its not your regular bloc party style shody electro fest then? hahah ;)
no, not quite ;)
...interesting naming of our remix! But thank you. Can we have a physical copy for our archives?
yeah, tom came up with some weird and wacky names for them all.
yes, you certainly can have a physical copy for the archives- hit me on facebook with an address, and once they're done and back from the printers, i'll send one to you! and a copy of arrivals too if you're lucky ;)
toby- the maybeshewill remix was of 'the butterfly effect', which was on EP02, not Arrivals, so seemed a bit out of place on there! we'll get that out at somepoint though!
i meant i was surprised they didnt do a new one!
well we did give them files for 'i am a crooked man', but Robin said his computer died and then they went on tour for like 5 years so didn't have time to do one! d'oh!
