Minneapolis internet-pop manipulators Elite Gymnastics released their free-download debut EP Ruin last year, bundling it with Ruin 2, a collection of reworkings. There’s long been talk of a new remix collection called Ruin 3, which includes remixes from people like How To Dress Well and Physical Therapy. It’s finally here now, but it’s not a downloadable collection of songs. Instead, it’s a website. Check it out here and download “Here, In Heaven 4 & 5 (Remix By CFCF),” a glimmering eight-minute remix from the Montreal producer Mike Silver, below.
