Cold Cave Remix Belle & Sebastian

If you didn’t know it before, Wes Eisold’s recent Summer Mix should’ve clued you into the breadth of the Cold Cave leader’s listening habits. His remix of Belle & Sebastian’s “I Didn’t See It Coming” would make sense on the aforementioned, really, planted somewhere amid those sad, pretty tracks by Arthur Russell, Vashti Bunyan, Billy Bragg, the Gun Club, Love And Rockets, Incredible String Band, and the Go-Betweens. It’ll appear on the vinyl-only “Come On Sister” 12”. Eisold had the following to say about his remix of the Belle & Sebastian Write About Love track: He sets the stage nicely, describing how more than a few folks thought about Belle & Sebastian in the late ’90s.

In 1998 I lived on a street called the Eastern Promenade in Portland, Maine. A past-time of mine was walking the sea lined street listening to “If You’re Feeling Sinister” and “The Boy With The Arab Strap.” Belle was new and exciting and it felt as if articulation, literation and genuine honesty had made a much needed return that hadn’t existed like this since the Smiths. Elegant and seedy. I missed their first Boston show but it was instantly bootlegged. I bought a copy shortly after at Mystery Train from Peter Prescott. It’s still the very small personal triumphs that make everything worth it, and I’m happy that years later I got to release records on the same label as Belle and Burma. I wanted the remix to take me back to Boston days of late 90′s/early 2000′s. Gibby’s Start, the Pill or the Manray. It works for me then and now. Hope you enjoy.
