Neneh Cherry & The Thing – “Accordion (Jim O’Rourke Remix)”
A few months ago, we awarded Album Of The Week to The Cherry Thing, the volcanic covers collection from O.G. sassed-out polyglot-pop queen Neneh Cherry and Scandinavian jazz trio the Thing. Next week, they’ll release an EP of remixes of tracks from The Cherry Thing, and it’ll include Four Tet’s remix of “Dream Baby Dream,” as well as contributions from Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, Merzbow, and others. And it’ll also include out-music all-star Jim O’Rourke’s sublimely withdrawn six-minute reworking of “Accordion,” Cherry and the Thing’s cover of the Madvillain classic. Listen to that one below.
The Cherry Thing Remixes EP is out 11/13 on Smalltown Supersound.
