DiS favourites Bloc Party return with a remixed version of their third album Intimacy
Wut the rewangle? If their previous remix album was anything to go by, Intimacy Remixed is going to be less a bedazzling collection of donk-enriched reworkings, and much more likely to feature a selection of sparse, de-jangled, ethereal reinterpretations, plus a few drenching-beyond-recognitions into totally different genres.
We say this because the album features remixes by the likes of Mogwai and No Age. Oh, don't pull a colon-open-bracket - there's bound to be some silly blogtronica action as Filthy Dukes, Hervé and We Have Band also feature on it.
Ahead of the album there'll be a single: 'Signs', as remixed by the greasy-aerobics loving Armand Van Helden. It's due for release on April 27th.
The remix album itself follows on May 11th, tracklisting as follows:
- 'Ares' (Villains)
- 'Mercury' (Hervé Is In Disarray)
- 'Halo' (We Have Band Dub)
- 'Biko' (Mogwai)
- 'Trojan Horse' (John B)
- 'Signs' (Armand Van Helden)
- 'One Month Off' (Filthy Dukes)
- 'Zephyrus' (Phase One)
- 'Talons' (Phones RIP)
- 'Better Than Heaven' (No Age)
- 'Ion Square' (Banjo or Freakout)
- 'Letter To My Son' (Gold Panda)
- 'Your Visits Are Getting Shorter' (Double D)
Here's the video for the AVH version of 'Signs':

DiScuss: Thoughts on the above remix? Did you like Silent Alarm remixed? Has Intimacy grown on you yet? Anyone fancy adding rewangle to Urban Dictionary?
