Thrill Jockey release Wooden Shjips' Remixes 12" next week -an MP3 or FLAC version is already available at Boomkat. The space rock / psychedelic rock San Franciscans are the latest to get the remix treatment from the likes of veteran UK dance producer /DJ Andrew Weatherall; another one by Sonic Boom (a.k.a. Pete Kember of Spacemen 3) and the third by Kandodo (a.k.a. Simon Price of The Heads. Has to be my favourite release so far this year... Weatherall's outstanding bass-heavy remix pulses along with a sort of Jan Hammer-Miami-Vice meets Giorgio Moroder dancebeat. "Crossing" has everything going for it; Kember's mix is as trippy as it can get and Kanado's is a brain-munching 12 minutes of guitar distortion which sounds to me something like a spaced out Tibetan dungchen and percussion überdrone. Utterly fabulous. Very highly recommended. one2zero
