Cave Painting "So Calm (Vondelpark Remix)"

In the hands of London trio Vondelpark, soaring indie-rock tracks like "So Calm" by UK band Cave Painting become almost unrecognizable in the best way. There are hints of the original—noodling guitar solos are embedded into the thick medley of flickering synth notes and layered ambience, the anthemic singing is scaled back to a near whisper, and the drum beat leans toward a garage-influenced shuffle—but Vondelpark was able to infuse itself into the remix, too. The production outfit's taste for smoky, reverberating noise rises to the forefront of the mix, making for a densely textured sonic fog.
