OUT NOW featuring remixes of the Doomed Bird of Providence track off their debut album Will Ever Pray.


Some truly amazing reworkings of the track from the artists below (text from the Front & Follow site):

I Am A Vowel is Nelly Languier. Fang Bomb released her debut album ‘ET OP LA BANG!’, created with her voice, stones and a laptop computer. The ‘Body Curves EP’ will be out in 2011 on Fang Bomb. I Am A Vowel says of the this remix: “I was inspired for the major part of my remix by the little piece of vocal ’She arrives’”.

Mark Beazley is the founder member of the group Rothko, who disbanded after 13 years in October 2010. He now plays in the groups Rome Pays Off and Signals, and runs the wonderful Trace Recordings label. Mark says: “With the remix, I tried to convey both the dark and the wistful side of the track; the brutality of the subject matter, but also the sadness of the remembrance of the father who used to bring back ‘pieces
of the moon…’

Position Normal is Chris Bailiff & Katja Ekman: colourful audio is played on wood-panelled stereos, and voices are talking at you like you really never thought they would. It sounds decidedly stylish, in all this; beautiful; and you want to know where Position Normal have been going about dipping their fingertips. They say of their remix: “We felt that we wanted to use elements from the track itself and nothing more. All that was needed was there already. Only our memories of it are different”.

Psychological Strategy Board is a collaboration between Time Attendant and Jonny Mugwump. Based in London Paul Snowdon (Time Attendant) is a painter and musician. Jonny is a radio broadcaster and event curator, occasional music writer and DJ. They say about the track: “We crawled through many nights looping, texturing and playing live and determined to remain in the spirit of the original song. The end
result then is a live recording with no edits. It began as very specific homage to Klaus Schulze but we lost sight of this as other themes came to light. We still love Klaus though. We also had quite a lot to drink and wore some quite stupid clothes”. /

Zoon van snooK is the alias of Bristol Weirdsmith Alec Snook. The debut Zoon van snooK 12” EP was released on acclaimed Brighton label Cookshop at the end of 2008. Never afraid of a beguiling melody and always blurring the lines between experimental and accessible, Zoon van snooK produces evocative audio mosaics which offer something new with each listen. Al created the remix with “chopped and pulverised string parts with added synth revelry”.

Robert Logan has been composing for a number of years and the resulting debut ‘Cognessence’ shows the confidence of his production and the intelligent fusion of influences from folk, medieval and classical to krautrock and electronica. He blends acoustic and electronic instruments and sound sources including voices, field recordings and a hungarian cimbalom, and has developed an intuitive and fluid use of digital
production tools through which he squeezes, teases and shapes this material. He has a new album on Slowfoot in 2011. Robert says: “A remix [lovingly?] manufactured in the midsts of a brutal bout of insomnia, baked in the glare of moonlight”.

The Doomed Bird of Providence’s debut album, ‘Will Ever Pray’, is out on Front & Follow, featuring the original version of ‘Fedicia Exine’ and the five part operatic serial ‘The Massacre of the whole of the passengers and part of the crew of The Sea Horse on her homeward passage from Sydney’.
