As far as visual treatments, shape-shifting BTW Cold Cave have given us Love Comes Close’s “Life Magazine” as an excellently campy video starring Marti Domination and a cheerful RadioShack holiday ad. Sonically, it rests somewhere between the two. The original was sung by ex-Xiu Xiu member Caralee McElroy, who’s currently an ex-Cold Cave member, too. Fittingly then, her voice is basically non-existent outside a ghostly loop on this eerie Pantha Du Prince remix. Continuing the disappearance theme, another ex-Cold Caver Max G. Morton, who still runs Heartworm Press with band leader Wesley Eisold, appears on the single’s cover. Add it to the track’s image bank, too.
