First Listen

Cock & Swan "Looking Out (Graintable Remix)"

Following the release of last year's Secret Angles LP from Seattle dream-pop outfit Cock & Swan, the pair has solicited a number of remixes for the album's tracks. November's Recess Tangle Vol. 1 collection (the Braxton/Plamer remix from which we shared before its release) was the first result of this project, and Cock & Swan's remix gathering has now yielded a second volume of Recess Tangle, which will see a release on January 28 via the Hush Hush label's Bandcamp. Nestled among the forthcoming compilation's 12 eclectic efforts is this rework from Portland producer Graintable. The artist morphs "Looking Out" into a loping, filter-heavy house workout featuring miniature guitar blips, wordless vocal chops, and a restless bassline—all helping to render the production into an interesting sort of dancefloor-minded collage. The remix also comes with its own video full of shape-shifting geometrics and morphing greyscale patterns, which can be viewed after the jump.
