Caroline Murmurs Mixes
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Temporary Residence Ltd.
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
A siren in the mold of David Lynch's favorite songbird Julee Cruise, Caroline has pipes tailor-made for chill-out electronica. Which explains why she's been given a good repurposing by similarly inclined soundtrackers, who have taken her recent effort, Murmurs, out for a healthy run. Lullatone transforms "Bicycle" into an ambient spacewalk, while Brightest Feathers gives "Sunrise" some rhythmic backbone. The latter is a stark opposite of Logreybeam's remix of the same track, a stretch of glitchy synths and lonesome piano. If Caroline's Murmurs was the ethereal main course, Murmurs Mixes is more like the after-dinner cocktail, cooked up by digital techs who like to slice and dice.
