On the Yesterday & Today Remixe EP, available digitally and on vinyl December 8, three talented up and coming practitioners of indie infused electronica have reinterpreted songs off the Field's latest album "Yesterday and Today." Pitchfork approved London artist Gold Panda recently caused a stir with his remixes for Bloc Party, Little Boats and Telepathe. Here he samples The Field's hypnotic and building "I Have the Moon, You Have the Internet" turning it into a pulsating and sensual dub.
Rainbow Arabia is a new husband and wife duo from Los Angeles who recently made waves with their mini LP "Kabukimono." The sound was like nothing you've heard before and they don't disappoint here. The Field's "Sequenced" is re-imagined as a Moroder-like freak out with Tiffany Preston's otherworldly singing lending an alluring exotic feel.
The Walls consist of Londoners Sam Willis (Allez Allez) and Alessio Natalizia (Banjo, Freakout). Recently the (then) unsigned duo became an internet sensation with their song "Burnt Sienna" which impressed a myriad of music blogs including tastemaker site Pitchfork. Here they take the lush shimmering trance of The Field's "Leave It" and give it an imaginative industrial dissonance.
Yesterday & Today Remixe offers three refreshingly unorthodox interpretations which both honor and expand upon The Field's uncompromising spirit of innovation. It's a fitting tribute to an amazing and vital artist.
