Viernes "Swimmer's Ear (Golden Ages Remix)"
Philly production duo Golden Ages (pictured above) delivers this blown-out treatment of "Swimmer's Ear," taken from lo-fi ambient outfit Viernes' debut album, Sinister Devices. Theirs is a remix that assaults you from the get-go with high-register vocal "aahs," muffled drum-machine beats, and something that sounds like a bassline bouncing in the middle of it all. It doesn't let up its distorted audio attack once throughout its run time—coming across like Wolf Eyes or Nurse With Wound giving a go at radio-ready dance music.
Sinister Devices is available now.
