Moby’s recent album Innocents included a gently drifting electro-folk song called “Almost Home” with vocals by Secretly Canadian mainstay Damien Jurado, who has a new album of his own out this week. Now Moby’s Mute labelmates Liars have gotten their hands on it, so it’s not gentle in the slightest. The experimental trio (who, yes, also have a new album coming) have converted “Almost Home” into a brisk gurgle with muffled vocals and ominous keyboards. In other words, they’ve turned it into a Liars song, albeit one stretched out to eight minutes with a celestial coda tacked on the end. Listen below.
Innocents is out now via Mute. Liars’ Mess is coming 3/24, also on Mute. Jurado’s Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son is out this week through Secretly Canadian. Purchase the “Almost Home” remix at Beatport.
