John Cale – “Living With You (Laurel Halo Remix)”
Last year, the eternally boss Velvet Underground legend John Cale released his queasy and perplexingly titled solo album Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood. And now, the drone-pop sensibility-challenger Laurel Halo has remixed Cale’s album track “Living With You,” creating a cross-generational confluence which we never would’ve thought to expect but which somehow makes perfect sense. Halo’s version of the song, which is nearly seven minutes long, is somehow both placid and disconcertingly busy, as berserk electronic pings jump all over a spare and mournful piano figure. Listen below.
Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood is out now on Double Six, and the Halo remix is out now at iTunes.
