Gardens And Villa – “Colony Glen (Mark McGuire’s Road Chief Remix)”

By Michael Nelson / April 9, 2014 - 11:26 am

Gardens & Villa and Mark McGuire are responsible for two of the year’s more impressive albums (Dunes and Along The Way, respectively), and now they’ve teamed up: McGuire has remixed Dunes single “Colony Glen,” transforming the synth-pop track into something sparkly, ethereal, and weightless, like a school of minnows just beneath the surface of a sun-dappled pond. I like the original very much, and I like what McGuire has done with it even more. Listen.

Dunes is out now via Secretly Canadian; Along The Way is out now via Dead Oceans.
