Animals as Leaders "The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing (Crushfield Remix)"

Somewhere amongst the bushes and rocks pictured above is Crushfield, a Canadian producer who here offers his take on Animals as Leaders' "The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing." On his rework, Crushfield loosely drapes the original track's math-rock-style guitar atop heavy-handed rhythmic elements: straightforward kicks and snares trade off hits as crisp hats fill the space in between. Eventually, the procession is met by subtle layers of sneaky arpeggios and a thick, restless bassline, which helps guide the track to the end of its five-minute run. Having appeared on a split 12" for the New Kanada label earlier this year, Crushfield will release another record through the imprint early next year, but not before delivering his debut live performance at the New Kanada label night in Toronto this weekend; more info here.
