City Slang have released a 6 track EP by Calexico. Well
actually the CD is 7 tracks as it includes some enhanced nonsense.
Primarily a remix project as it has remixes by lots of people who remix
things. People such as Jazzanova (has to be the worst name
ever...), ISO68, Weschel Garland, Panoptica and The Gotan
Project. The lead track is pretty damned good and brings to mind John
Barry and Portishead which is right up my alley. Then it enters
remix heaven when the afore mentioned people take the mantel. The Weschel
Garland mix sounded rather nice I thought in a Manitoba/ Fourtet
way. Panoptica do the Mexican Tijuana thing but as it was remixed
there that's probably no surprise. The bottom line is I thought this
looked quite rubbish and it's actually quite nice really. Black Heart is on CD and 12"
