Synopsis

Album Description
For this remix album, the High Llamas ignore the usual constraints of the form, bypassing mere dance floor utility in favor of genuinely interesting sonic reinventions. The remixers-Mouse On Mars, Cornelius, Schneider TM, Jim O'Rourke, Kid Loco, Stock Hausen and Walkman, and highest Llama Sean O'Hagan-mostly keep only the barest outlines of the original tracks, refashioning each in their own styles. Mouse On Mars' wibbly-wobbly analogue synthesizers, Cornelius' playful Brian Wilson homages, Kid Loco's slinky groove, and O'Rourke's soundscapes are probably the most successful, but there's little tedium on this 46-minute album. V2.

"The first few listens of "Lollo Rosso" impressed me, however it wasn't until I sat down and submirsed myself in it (as opposed to having it playing in the background whilst mashing buttons on the Playstation) that I truly appreciated it fully.This is music that complements afterglow mornings -- eating omlettes on the back porch. This is the music that your mind freaks on as you shoot into a foggy abyss on the interstate. Notable highlights include the MoM remix, the Schneider TM remix and Jim O'rourke's mindblowing "Mini-Management"... make sure to pay attention to the brass and xylophone chaos in it's second half."
