Hands Down

This came out on line on June 1st and is what happens when Danish dance producer Trentemoller gets Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg to sing on one of his tracks. You could argue that this is so in thrall to The Cure, Siouxsie and early 80s goth-rock that it’s almost a Batcave tribute act but that would be churlish because this is so well done and so good that you should just let it push your buttons while you career around flapping your arms like a chicken. It wins, yes, hands down.

Last year Bagging Area’s patron saint Andrew Weatherall remixed Danish electronica wizard Trentemoller’s Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider, Go! single, turning it into a supercharged glam rock stomp. He also provided a second remix, the Sky 81 Mix, a dreamier version, more echo and more submerged. I listened to an internet interview with Weatherall a month or so ago where he said this second remix had never been released. But, look, here it is…

New To Me

I do like it when I discover something new- last Friday Drew at Across The Kitchen Table posted a new Weatherall remix, one I knew nothing about. I must be slipping. I’d get over to Drew’s place sharpish if I were you. It’s a remix of Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider, Go, Go, Go !!! from Danish artist Trontemoller’s album Into The Great Wide Yonder, and very good it is too. The 12″ turned up on Saturday morning, with the original version, Trentemoller’s own remix, Weatherall’s stomping 50s inspired mix and Lulu Rouge’s dubstep remix. Not having my finger on the pulse of the Scandinavian electronic scene suddenly I’ve got a whole new thing to go at, knowing I’ll be shelling out for both his albums and other stuff besides. This track is Shades Of Marble, also from Into The Great Wide Yonder, and is a lovely piece of melancholic but pacey electronica, with great swathes of 50s tremelo guitar popping up.
