- Nature-Nurture (Sonic Boom Remix) by The Garment District
I’ve not heard these Garment District characters before but this 7” is out on the trusty La Station Radar and their album is on Night People AND this track has been remixed by the mighty Sonic Boom so they must be doing something right! Further investigation indicates that their leader Jennifer Baron was a founding member of The Ladybug Transistor too so we’re talking some serious pedigree here.
Anyway, the Sonic Boom mix of ‘Nature-Nurture’ on the first side is a twinkly, gently throbbing bit of psychedelic blisspop with silky vocals and carefully layered synth melodies, with Mr Boom’s added touch making things sound super slick.
On the other side ‘Miraculous Metal’ has a soundtracky almost ambient techno feel to it with drifty synths and a metronomic beat and smooth, slow guitar melodies. It’s really warm and relaxing, slightly new agey. Then to close there’s a tiny little ditty called ‘Vigor’ with delicate piano, subtly hypnotic loops and loads of samples. It’s got a dreamy Madlibbiness about it, and is also reminding me a little bit of that Ela Orleans song with all the Ted Hughes samples on that recent four-way split LP. Despite its brevity it’s my favourite thing on here, although all three tracks are very nice.
