Benedic Lamdin makes a lot of noise for one man. Such is the mystery and depth of his ever-morphing Nostalgia 77 project, transforming from jazz orchestra to electro remixer depending on his mood. This two-disc collection features the best of both worlds. Disc One is dedicated to remixes, including his tweaks of TM Juke and Bonobo, as well as others touching up Nostalgia tracks–a brilliant reggaefied take on his cover of White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” with Alice Russell on vocals and Povo’s soulful transformation of “Wildflower” lead the way. Disc Two features his live band’s handiwork, closing with a 22-minute rendition of “The Impossible Equation.” Together they prove that Lambin’s creativity on stage and in remix mode is exceptional.
