Cock & Swan "Inner Portal (Braxton/Palmer Remix)"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Seattle dream-pop outfit Cock & Swan (pictured above) dropped its third LP, Secret Angles, last month via Hush Hush, and the group has since enlisted a host of producers to contribute remixes of the record for a forthcoming, two-volume compilation titled Recess Tangle. Vol. 1 will be available as a free download via Bandcamp on November 5, and features—among productions by Kid Smpl, Cex, DJAO, and others—Olympia-based artist Braxton/Palmer's take on the transcendent "Inner Portal." The Washington producer's foggy rework dives into darker textures than the original tune did, propelled by a brooding, anxious house rhythm that whirrs in tandem with Ola Hungerford's submerged vocal coos.
