6/10 Richard 1st May 2019
Remix albums and EPs are often a hit and miss affair and this Current 93 effort is no exception. You get 4 mixies for your cash, and a couple of promo films on the dvd. This is a dualdisc so one fat double sided disc to deal with. On the audio side JG Thirwell (aka Foetus) remixes 'Black Ships Ate The Sky' from the LP of the same name and it's nothing like the original. A pounding beat, treated vocal refrain of the title track, and quite industrial as you would expect. There are two versions - a long and short one, with the short one being slightly shorter but also slightly less pounding. Matmos remix the same track next, and this is better. Tibet's vocals are centre stage, and the beat is a lot more subtle, and being Matmos is much more playful. Finally Matmos also remix 'The Beautiful Dancing Dust' with vocals from Antony (aka Anohni), and this is just lovely. Piano and vocal are central, but Matmos stretch this out nicely with a fluttering gentle beat. The best track on the ep for me. There is also a film for this remix so you can enjoy it on yer telly box too.
