Listen Dan Deacon's remix of 'Blue Elvis' by Peals [405 Premiere]

by John Morrison, 23 April 2013

Peals are a US duo that makes low-fi instrumental, beach-bum lullabies in a similar vein to Real Estate, which is a marked escape from their more upbeat projects; William Cashion is from Future Islands and Bruce Willen from Double Dagger. Fellow Baltimore native, Dan Deacon, has remixed 'Blue Elvis' from upcoming album Walking Field.

Deacon's reinvention accelerates the meditative guitar jangle and adds layers of subtle, glitchy electronics, transforming what was an unwinding, pre-siesta midday beer into a start of the night shot of mescal.

Walking Field is out on 13th May 2013 on Thrill Jockey.

    I'm vaguely aware that most readers of The 405 are probably from the U.K. I also know that the U.K will soon be in the grips of winter, and that a summer-themed mixtape might thus seem wholly innapropriate. But on my side of the world summer is on its way, and with it comes the need for some good tunes to relax in the sun to. If it's cold where you are then crank up the heaters, put on a hawaiian shirt and pretend. 1. Heart of Chambers by Beach House 2. Mist by Shogu Tokumar... (continued) [read more]
