The Silver Lake Chorus REMIXES is available now! Rediscover our debut album through genre-bending remixes by influential artists like Nashville-based ambient guitar duo Hammock, Carmen Rizzo (of Niyaz), guitar experimentalist/soundtrack composer David Torn, and Japanese producer starRo!
Stereogum premiered the first song off the album and writes, “Under starRo’s direction, ‘Heavy Star Movin” is embedded with a chillwave backbone that pushes the song towards an even dreamier headspace. Where the original drifted amicably in place, the remix orbits with a bouncing groove that still never dips too far below the skyline.”
And ColoradoDaily.com writes: “‘The Silver Lake Chorus Remixes’ has layer upon layer of dense synths and drum machines with gorgeous vocals sitting on top. Start with the track ‘From The Snow Tipped Hills,’ a Justin Vernon composition remixed by Carmen Rizzo. The song combines Bon Iver melodies with Gold Panda production to sculpt a forest of beautiful melody. Other standout tracks include ‘Heavy Star Movin’ (starRo Remix)’ and ‘Same Song (Blade Foley Showtime After Dark Remix).’ This record surprises the listener with gentle pleasantries and deep production. Check out ‘The Silver Lake Chorus Remixes’ for a peek into The Silver Lake Chorus’ breathtaking world.”
As with our debut, which re-contextualized songs written by established indie artists and gave them a highly-tailored choral treatment, the remix album invites yet another level of interpretation and musicianship as expert texturalists re-imagine the album track-by-track. Find/share/buy/gift/enjoy the The Silver Lake Chorus REMIXES on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and Spotify.
