Freelance Whales – “Generator ^ First Floor (Aislyn Remix)”

Last time we checked in with Band To Watch Freelance Whales, they were changing up some of their tracks for a studio performance at Grand Street Recording. Now they’ve given Brooklyn duo Aislyn a chance to mix things up. Aislyn is Passion Pit keyboardist Ian Hultquist making soothing, gently percussive pop with his girlfriend Sofia Degli Alessandri. NYC’s recent snowstorms (plus a rare off-tour moment for Hultquist) left Aislyn with some remixing free time. Their “First Floor” renovation wraps the song’s vocals in shimmering glockenspiel, while an analog keyboard rumbles underneath.
