Peter Wolf Crier Premiere “Settling It Off” Remix

Peter Wolf Crier have released a remix of their single “Settling It Off” today. The track features Minneapolis PWC compatriots Joe Horton of No Bird Sing, Kristoff Krane, and Alexei Casselle aka MC Crescent Moon of Kill the Vultures. The four friends met when they were introduced by Mikey Larsen of Eyedea & Abilities, who passed away last year. Peter Pisano says of the track, “Can you hear it when you listen to the remix? You know how it sounds like their verses live in three tenses at once: Grandpa’s earest wisdom, Brother’s beautiful skill, and Mom and Dad’s upright courage? This is what it felt like to drink with Mike.” You can check out the remix here or over at Welikeit.indie

The band is also gearing up for a run of West Coast dates with Birds + Batteries as well as Sondre Lerche later in the month. A full list of shows is here.

GAYNGS Remixes Gardens & Villa’s “Orange Blossom”

Secretly Canadian’s Gardens & Villa got the royal remix treatment by Ryan Olson’s GAYNGS, and the results are tremendous. Olson was recording at Jim Eno’s studio in Austin just as G&V were traispsing through town. The song “Orange Blossom” called to Mr. Gayngs, and after what I can only imagine was a liquor-soaked Austin, Texas bro-down, the remix-level friendship was forged. Altered Zones said that it turns off the lights and fills the room with the irresistible musk of desire! Holy shit, that is scandalous!

GAYNGS Remix Blonde Redhead’s “Here Sometimes”

Blonde Redhead must know that anything Gayngs touches turns to gold. The veteran rockers reached out to our favorite Minneapolis collective to remix/ throw in a few signature Gayngs gunshot sounds to a track from their 2010 LP Penny Sparkle. Hear the result in the player below, along with Blonde Redhead remixes from other artists including Pantha Du Prince, Salem and more.
