Jamie Lidell – “Compass (tUnE-yArDs Remix)”
This remix of Jamie Lidell’s “Compass” by BTW tUnE-yArDs appears on an EP free to anyone who pre-ordered a ticket to a show on Liddell’s fall tour (9/6-11/20). Other mixes were helmed by Tiga, Micachu, and bandmates Guillermo Brown and Andre Vida. If you didn’t purchase a ticket, no reason you shouldn’t hear Merrill Garbus transform the dusky, ambling, sorta ominous Compass title track into something worthy her colorful facepaint. “cOmPaSs”:
Compass is out via Warp. If you’re curious about getting the EP: “Local promoters will provide all purchasers with a download link on the day of concert, and all hard ticket purchasers will receive a link from the box office on the show day by presenting their ticket.” We’re told there will be another Compass remix EP out digitally in the fall with additional remixes. So feel free to stay home if you’re not in the mood for live music.
