One thing I love about a good remix, like this one, is that it forces you to pay attention to a song that you’ve heard in the background throughout your life. The original is wired into your brain and you end up focusing on the differences in what you remember hearing and what the remixer has changed. Your brain keeps noticing tiny differences while expecting to hear the familiar patterns.

Hello. I recently finished up a new issue of Flotation Device. I continue to be on somewhat of a roll. This one is everything that came to mind when I thought about the second band I played in, The Rories. Mostly mundane things as I tried to avoid obvious band/music zine stuff. But I don’t know what that really would be at this point. If you’re interested in getting one. Feel free to get in touch or head over to ye olde etsee shoppee!
