A week or so ago Kieran Hebden remixed the Acorn’s “Restoration.” Here, Four Tet’s There Is Love In You’s glistening opener “Angel Echoes” goes under the knife. In the April/May of 2003 I remember Daniel Snaith/Caribou making a splash via Manitoba’s Up In Flames, Hebden following suit with Rounds. They seem to do that a lot of that kind of overlapping — see, for instance, the still-fresh Swim and aforementioned There Is. In fact, it sorta feels like this remix has happened a dozen times. Or it should have. Snaith picks up the original’s pace, extends its length, and eventually exorcises its ghosts.
The “Angel Echoes” single is out 7/19 in the UK and 8/3 in the U.S. via Domino.
