First off, for anyone who ran into it, apologies for the random downtime my blog has been experiencing… should be in the clear now. Had I been able to post on Thursday, I would have been enthusiastically joining in the chorus of praise for the latest killer remix out of the Animal Collective camp. Ostensibly helmed by the absent-as-of-late Deakin (Josh Dibb), this undertaking plays out a bit like Panda Bear‘s (Noah Lennox) hypnotic remake of The Notwist’s “Boneless”. More cover than remix, here “Love Like a Sunset” is molded into a pulsating wave of spacey, tribalist-pop, complete with additional vocals. After you put that gem on repeat for a while, you’ll probably realize that now is as good a time as ever to revisit the other drugged-out remixes that A.C. has put out this year. Check it all out down below. (via)
